DATA PLATFORM CONFERENCE SESSIONS
Getting Started with Power BI Report Server
For years, SQL Server Reporting Services and Power BI lived in their own separate worlds: SSRS as an on-premises solution and Power BI in the cloud. However, with the release of Power BI Report Server, SSRS and Power BI can live happily together as an on-premises solution. In this presentation, we'll cover the basics of Power BI Report Server. We'll discuss the essential moving parts and will walk through what your organization will need to get started using this new union of Power BI and SSRS.
WORKSHOP: From Beginning to Expert SQL Programmer in One Day
What are the most problematic patterns and anti-patterns that trip up SQL Server developers on a daily basis? What sort of SQL and Transact-SQL challenges does every SQL Server developer encounter at some point in their career? Loaded with live demonstrations and useful techniques, this session will teach you how to take your SQL Server queries from the mundane to the masterful.
Deep Dive into the Features of SQL Server 2017
SQL Server 2017 is more than just a database engine. It is a new modern data platform. In this session, I will present all the unique features and capabilities that make SQL Server 2017 a modern, innovative platform for data professionals. I'll discuss and demo SQL Server on Linux and Docker Containers, Adaptive Query Processing. Automatic Tuning, new HADR and security features, graph data types, and Machine learning services with Python and Native Scoring. I'll also conclude the talk by discussing the future of SQL Server for upcoming releases.
Use R to Process JSON and XML to Save your Sanity
Using packages such as xml2, jsonlite and jq, this session will showcase how you can work with XML and JSON easily. We'll also cover how you can work with data that's been stored in SQL Server so you can work with your data either from an R stand-alone instance or in a stored procedure in SQL Server.
R in Power BI for Absolute Beginners
In this session, we’ll look at powerful but simple-to-use datatypes in R such as data frames. The session will also give attendees a chance to upgrade their data analysis skills by looking at R data transformation using a powerful set of tools to make things simple: the tidyverse. Then, we will look at integrating our R work into Power BI, and visualizing our data using beautiful visualizations with R and Power BI.
MEET OUR INFLUENTIAL CLOUD PLATFORM CONFERENCE SPEAKERS
Our speakers understand the importance of managing large amounts of data - and being able to meet the needs of many users across multiple clouds.
Get everything you need to know in order to stay up to date and do your job better - at the only IT & developer training conference built by real users.
Speakers from all branches of the IT industry, consultants, engineers, developers, and business owners [are at IT/Dev Connections]. Each with their own experiences waiting to give candid input about the products we all work with that's not affected by the corporate messaging of the vendor.
I love attending because of the breadth of technologies which are covered at this event. If there are sessions on SQL Server, or PowerShell, or Azure that I want to attend, these are all available to me - in 1 single event.
[IT/Dev Connections is...] the one conference I would gladly pay for myself to attend because it provides you information about how technology is used out in the real-world. Many other conferences provide information about technologies, how they were designed and how they are supposed to work. And there's the catch. Technology isn't always used in the way that it's supposed to, and often doesn't behave the way you expect either. Because this conference is so focused on providing real-world information, every single session will provide you with at least a few tidbits you didn't know because they are badly or not documented at all. THAT is the real value. People talking about the practical use of technology rather than the theory of it.

I love the depth of both IT Pro and Developer sessions. Since more and more of us are doing both these days, I am very excited at events where I can learn from both sides.
