SQLintersection Offers the Best Business Value
for SQL Server Developers

Content chairs Kimberly Tripp and Paul Randal put this conference together carefully so that you'll get the most out of your time away from the office. We will not waste your time with a lot of high‐level marketing; this is really useful stuff! You'll learn about problem solving techniques and technologies that you can implement today, including:

  • Practical performance monitoring and troubleshooting of SQL Server workloads
  • SQL Server 2014 new features around programmability and performance
  • Designing databases for scale and performance
  • Indexing strategies, query plan analysis, and query troubleshooting

Everything will be based on real‐world experience, meaning you can relate it to and solve problems in your business environment, giving you clear and immediate return on your training investment. The mix of full-day workshops and sessions is fantastic! And you can cross over to sessions at any of the co-located DEVintersection or <anglebrackets /> conference tracks for free.

Several sessions at SQLintersection will be delivered by current members of the Microsoft SQL Server team. They're here to deliver technical sessions, not marketing. All of the speakers are accessible during the conference. You'll be amazed just how much time you can spend talking to the speakers at SQLintersection compared to other conferences. SQLintersection is focused, personal and designed to make the best of your time away from the office. Bring your toughest SQL questions. They’ll get answered at SQLintersection, May 2015.

See exciting insider keynotes delivered by:

  • Scott Guthrie, Microsoft Exec Vice President
  • Stephen Guggenheimer, Microsoft Corporate Vice President
  • Scott Hanselman, Principal Architect for Web Platform and Tools
  • Rob Leffertts, Director of Program Management for the Office 365 and SharePoint team

An important aspect of SQLintersection conference is the interaction with your favorite Microsoft experts and industry gurus. We’ve created "intersection times" when attendees get together with presenters for lively discussions. We believe it’s in the “white spaces between sessions” that cool things happen.
