SQL Server Days 2012

Quick Survey

  1. Do you live in Belgium?
  2. Do you somehow come into contact with SQL Server?

If you answered “yes” to both questions then there’s really no excuse not to be present at our SQL Server Days 2012 conference.  Not only are you getting training from the best experts, you’ll also have a chance to chat with them during the breaks!

This year, the conference spans two full days.  The first day is a pre-conference day with deep technical training by three well-known speakers: Bob Beauchemin, Chris Webb and Maciej Pilecki.  And the second day features the usual one-hour long presentations by local and international speakers, twenty sessions in total!

To stay up-to-date, follow us on Twitter: @sqlserverdays


The preconf day also features something special.  For each full-two-day registration, you can register one additional person for free to attend the SQL Server for Oracle DBAs pre-conference.  More details on that here: http://www.sqlserverdays.be/2012/special-offer-sql-server-daysbyod

See you there, and have fun!

Just like last year’s edition, we’ll not only be providing you with local Belgian speakers but we’ll do our best to present you with some internationally known names as well.  Some of them will be familiar from previous years while others will be new!

International speakers currently already made public are Bob Beauchemin, Chris Webb and Jen Stirrup.  On the Belgian front we’ll be having Pieter Vanhove.  And of course there are many to follow, so keep your eyes open on this blog or the official SQL Server Days website.

Ow yeah, in case you didn’t know already, SQL Server Days 2012 will be held on Nov 19 and 20, that’s right, two full days!  Don’t forget to mark them in your calendar!

Have fun!

Huh, the what?  I know INDEX and I know CLUSTERED INDEX.  Heck, I even know the filtered index, but COLUMNSTORE?  That’s new to me!
