dataMinds Connect is the new and improved version of the (former SQLUG.be) SQL Server Days. New and improved, keeping in mind the same core values. 2 days filled with learning, networking and a whole lot of laughs while doing so!
This year will be the 13th edition of the conference, and running for the fourth time as dataMinds Connect. Aiming to bring together all people with a passion for the Microsoft Data Platform, in all flavours possible, we're hoping to receive even more people than last year!
Go ahead and clearly mark Monday October 12th and Tuesday 13th in your schedule, as these will be 2 days you don't want to miss!
Open for all sessions related to the Microsoft Data Platform, in all possible flavours. Going from your more traditional DBA and BI topics, to more advanced AI topics.
All conference sessions will be 60 minutes, and allocated to a track.
Proposals for workshops are very welcomed, but bear in mind that we're searching for these on our own as well. It may be possible that certain precons are already booked.
We wholeheartedly encourage all new speakers to submit a proposal to our Newcomer Track.
To be clear, new speakers are considered to be people who have not yet spoken at a (technical) conference.
User Group sessions, webinars and client/team presentations are not taken into account. Each new speaker will be paired up with a buddy/mentor, who will provide them with highly valuable tips & tricks. Even more so, we'll provide new speakers with all assistance they need and want whilst preparing for their debut.
This year, we're trying out a new track, called the Experts Track. This track will be tailored towards deep dive sessions on advanced, complex topics. When submitting to this track, please make sure you clearly outline any prerequisites the attendees should have. We're aiming at level 400-500 (or higher) sessions only for this track.
