Conference Goals

We all want great content and I believe there is a great mix in the schedule below.  Our goals for the content include:

Actionalbe Content: Each session includes a take-away action you can use to continue the learning presented in the session
Accessible Content: We know you are probably not running 2016, so why should we only focus on new features?  We want you to be able to apply the topics to your environments today.  
Hands On: While the introduction is great, the ability to get onto a system actually walk through examples is a key component in learning.  Our hands our learning time will enable you to walk through pre-built scenarios to reinforce the concepts or you can grab a speaker and ask questions as you review something together.

The sessions focus on 3 main tracks–SQL Server Administration, Performance Tuning, Components beyond SQL Server like reporting, Big Data, and Azure.


Great Content with Great Fun

Conference Kickoff

If you are traveling from out of town or just want to pop in early, we will be having a opening social at the Downtown Courtyard Norfolk Marriott on Tuesday the 3rd, starting at 6pm.  You can check into the conference, grab your attendee badge and meet the speakers while enjoying the great scenery on the outdoor patio.
