I have been selected to speak for a second time at SQLBits, which is being hosted in Manchester UK this year from 27 February to 2 March 2019.
My session is called An overview of SQL Server 2019 for the busy DBA / developer. Here is the abstract:
SQL Server 2019 is a major new update for the data professional, and there’s a lot more than the big data stuff.
This session will highlight certain features that busy DBAs and developers will find useful. We’ll look at UTF-8 support, row-mode query processing improvements, and Always Encrypted with Secure Enclaves. Finally, we’ll look at a better sqlcmd by covering the command-line tool mssql-cli.
At the end of the session, you will have a better understanding of several new features in SQL Server 2019 which will help you as a database administrator or developer.
Demos will be included for most of the features covered.
If you haven’t yet, there’s still time to register to attend the conference. I hope to see you there!
