Welcome to the new incarnation of SQL Saturday Melbourne.

What are we about?

We are all about Data Platforms. Mainly cloud-based ones, but your on-premises ones have not gone away yet so let's ensure they continue to get the attention they deserve.

We are end-to-end. From your databases with transactional data, to data warehouses, data lakes, lake houses and the reporting and visualisations to get value from that data.

We welcome submissions on topics covering:

  • Database Development 
  • Database Administration
  • Database Migrations
  • Data Warehousing
  • Power BI
  • Data Lakes and Lakehouses
  • ETL/ELT Processing
  • AI/ML
