Recap SQL Server Conference 2015 – A Kickoff to new era

After 3 fantastic days at the SQL Server Conference 2015 in Darmstadt I would like to take the chance to take a short recap. First of all I would like to say thank you to our German PASS Community for organizing this great conference and to all the volunteers, sponsors and speakers that helped to make this happen. In 4 tracks and together with 42 international speakers we delivered for our conference visitors a great selection of sessions, half of them in English and with lot’s of MVPs on board.

Especially this year I had the feeling that there is a shift that is happing in the market. People are very interested in new technologies especially in the area of Cloud Computing and Data Analytics.  I personally believe that this year we will see a big movement in the BI business: https://nexxtjump.com/2014/07/22/a-call-to-all-data-engineers-and-bi-workers-2/

I was also happy to give a talk for our great community and visitors about “SAP HANA, Power Pivot, SQL Server – In Memory-Technologien im Vergleich”. You can find my slides on slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/marcelfranke/in-memorytechnologien-im-vergleich-sql-server-konferenz-2015

 

So I personally believe that this year will be a great one for all of us with lot’s of new stuff to learn and great projects to come. In the meantime we can all remember some very special moments of this conference. Some of mine are shared below, the rest you can find on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirkhondong/collections/72157650641795156/. Thanks to our Paparazzi Dirk to keep and save these moments for us.
