This was my 2nd time attending the annual conference and I barely got a chance to plan my schedule ahead of time. I pretty much selected the pre-con(s) the same day they were announced months prior, but not the general conference sessions until 2 days before my flight to Seattle, WA.
I compiled this list on 11/2/18 and asked for feedback at work. The feedback was simple.
Go to what you think will be best for our organization. You know our CIO likes the machine learning and bots stuff.
Perfect. So did I. 🙂
Well here was the list.
Nov 5 Mon: Performance-Centric T-SQL
Nov 7 Wed:
(Overlaps) 10:45 AM: On-Prem SQL Servers, Interstellar Performance
Nov 8 Thurs:
(Overlaps) 10:45 AM: Inside Columnstore Indexes
1:30 PM: Top 5 Power BI Custom Visuals
3:15 PM: An Introduction to Partitioning
Nov 8 Friday:
11 AM: KPIs from the Field
What transpired was a bit different – see next post. I later binged the highlight sessions which were pretty great, plus keynotes, on PASStv when they were published.
If you got to attend the conference in-person or on the live stream, I hope you enjoyed it. Hopefully, I get to attend next year as well.
