I have been chosen to speak at SQL Saturday in Vienna, Austria on 28th February.
The organisers have just moved the event to a larger venue to cope with the expected demand.
My talk is entitled Putting Your head in the Cloud– A Beginner’s Guide to SQL Azure
I started looking at Windows Azure last year as an option for a project at work and also for some testing of a web site that I manage for my local carnival.
I soon realised that neither I nor my colleagues knew that much about cloud computing so I decided to put my new found knowledge into a “lunch and learn” presentation for work and now for SQL Saturday events. The talk takes a look at Cloud Computing – what it is, the types of Cloud available and their advantages and disadvantages.
It then looks at Windows Azure and specifically SQL Azure DB and demonstrates creating, configuring and connecting to a SQL azure database.
There are 20 talks at SQL Saturday Vienna so if you fancy a weekend break in beautiful Vienna combined with a day of SQL training then take a look at https://www.sqlsaturday.com/374/eventhome.aspx
And don’t worry if you can’t speak German, many of the talks will be in English.
