Tomorrow I’m heading to Oslo and the Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NICCONF) – one of my favorite conferences! I’ve been invited to deliver three sessions this year:
“The force awakens – Azure SQL Server for the on-prem DBA” which is an introduction to Azure SQL Server in its different shapes,
“Azure Machine Learning for the absolute beginner” which is an introduction to Azure Machine Learning, its capabilities and what can be done with machine learning, and finally
“Learning to swim – an introduction to Azure Data Lake”, a quick overview of the what, how and when with Azure Data Lake.
Now, I’ve been running around trying to find some props for these sessions, and so far I’ve got fun stuff for two of them. Hopefully Oslo provides the third one tomorrow, and then it’ll be even more fun to attend these sessions. Let’s just say that it is surprisingly difficult to find pool toys in February…
I was invited to speak at NIC last year as well, and I was struck by the friendly feel of the conference. Not too big, not too small, plenty of great speakers, awesome attendees and very kind organizers.
I can’t wait to get there and meet all the attendees – will you join me?
