SQLBITS XI..again…unforgettable


For the second time I had the honor of being chosen as a speaker for the largest SQL Server event in Europe. the SQLBITS.
My journey began in Amsterdam, Leiden and Noordwijk a week before from SQLBITS , where I met fantastic places and generous people. I can say that Netherlands is a amazing country and it is something that was in my Bucket List.

So I flew to Nottingham, home of Robin Hood. On the first day, INeil Hambly and Tom La Rock headed out to explore the city. An amazing place, filled with several local history. Of course, we are talking about Europe, the birthplace of human history.

On Friday, the SQLBITS started with a Keynote of Conor Cunningham talking about Azure. I didn’t know that Connor was in the Azure team, and I can say that was an amazing presentation and we can wait a BIG stuff coming soon with Azure. Well, Buck Woody, Bob Ward and Conor Cunningham talking about Azure…hummm…we really need to get our eyes to the Cloud.

Then I went to the Kalen Delaney’s session – Seeking SQL Server Secrets..again I learned a  LOT of new stuff with trace flags..of course. She is the SQLQueen.  I’ve heard people saying things that she knows stuff about SQL Server that the SQL Server team  does not know (LOL).

On Saturday was my sessions. It had something like 50 people and all of them interested and making questions. It was amazing. All my demos worked and I could show a bit about the Power of PowerShell side of the force.

After that I got the Allen White’s session about PowerShell (of course) He is one of the master Jedi about this.

Our day finished with a great dinner with the #sqlfamily in a ..guess where … Brazilian restaurant (barbecue) funny lol

Again, it was a amazing conference, very well organized of course, and ..perfect..everything was perfect..at least for me.

I just need to thanks again to the SQLBITS team for the opportunity . I am deeply grateful and honored to be a part for the second time this fantastic conference.  And also to the amazing attendees of my session. You guys rock !!!!
