Event description

Description

Network, learn, ask a question, meet other folk, get fed - these are all things that happen at user group events. These events are a really great opportunity to socialise in an informal learning experience - if you want your own exposure then come and do a 1 - 5 minute nugget in front of your peers.

Remember to tell your friends and the people you work with; make sure you register as soon as you can.

17.30 – 18:00 Registration and networking

Meet and greet.

18:00 – 18:30 Round Table discussion and Nuggets - ALL
Take stock and get the latest news in the SQL Server field. This is also a great opportunity to ask any burning questions you have, may be a problem at work.

It's also a great opportunity to share your knowledge and gain exposure in the industry by giving a short 1 - 6 minute "nugget" demo/tip.

18:30 - 19:30 - SQL Operations Studio - Martin Croft

Anything that can make my job easier and make me more productive I am interested in. There are a lot of
different tools out there for the data professional to make their life easier. Microsoft has recently released in preview SQL Operations Studio, a cross-platform (Azure, Mac OS, Linux) open source platform for Developers and DBAs. Even in its infancy, it's on its third monthly release (17th Jan), with new features
added monthly this is starting to add things that are missing from likes of SSMS. I will cover what it offers, what you can do with it currently. The session will be demo-rich with information that might make your life easier (at work)

About Martin: Martin Croft is a time served SQL developer / DBA contractor / consultant who has worked
with SQL Server since SQL 6.5 all the way through to SQL 2017, having attending the user groups for many years he wanted to (try) and give something back for all the things he's have picked up from the sessions he’s seen and share things people find useful (hopefully). Martin is a co-organiser of the Manchester SQL PASS Usergroup and SQLSaturday Manchester.


19:30 - 19:50 - Break
Time for pizza

19:50 - 20:50 - Graph Databases - Martin Bell

SQL Server 2017 has introduced some graph database features into the SQL Server product. I will be looking at:
What are graph databases?
What can they be used for?
How you can do it with the new features in SQL Server 2017.

About Martin: Similar to Martin Croft but without the beard

Finally: Drinks down the pub
