Rick Lowe presents: Keeping Your DBA Happy:Why Some Practices Drive Them Crazy
Come listen to a full day of Microsoft Certified Master for SQL Server Rick Lowe discussing why best practices in SQL Server development should be followed, and what issues can surface (often after significant time has passed) if they are not followed.
Kevin Feasel presents: Enter The Tidyverse: R for the SQL Developer
In this day-long training, you will learn about R, the premier language for data analysis. We will approach the language from the standpoint of data professionals: database developers, database administrators, and data scientists. We will see how data professionals can translate existing skills with SQL to get started with R. We will also dive into the tidyverse, an opinionated set of libraries which has modernized R development. We will see how to use libraries such as dplyr, tidyr, and purrr to write powerful, set-based code. In addition, we will use ggplot2 to create production-quality data visualizations.
** Remember that if you register for a pre-con it does NOT automatically register you for SQL Saturday. Don't forget to register for our free day of training on Saturday as well!
