Welcome to Southampton SQL Server User Group, this event is hosted at St Andrews United Reformed Church located on the corner of Alma Road and The Avenue.
Please be aware that in order to attend we need you to register in advance as there is limited space and we need to know how many people to order pizza for, thanks :-)
We have a couple of great speakers covering different SQL Server based topics along with a number of prizes to give away and free pizza during the break.
18:15 - Doors Open
18:30 - Introductions
18:15 - David Postlethwaite - A guided tour of SQL server management studio
19:45 - Break
20:00 - Simon Whiteley - Azure SQL DataWarehouse - 1-100 DWUs
So, with much fanfare and cheering, Azure DataWarehouse is now live, but what does that mean to you? Reflecting on a large-scale Azure DW project, this session gathers together learnings, successes, failures and general opinions into a crash course in using Azure DataWarehouse “properly”.
We'll start by quickly putting the technology in context, so you know WHEN to use it, WHERE it’s appropriate and WHY it works the way it does.
Then dive into HOW to use it, looking at some real-life design patterns, best practice and some “tales from the trenches” from a recent large Azure DW project.
21:00 - Prize Draw & Close
21:15 - Event close
