Latest state of the business and technical updates on Microsoft data and cloud platform

Mark Souza, general manager - SQL Server Microsoft

The Mark and Mark show will be strategic, dynamic and technical. We are prepared to drill down on any topic related to Microsoft data platform, development platform or cloud platform. If the audience is willing to participate and ask questions , we promise you will walk away learning something new. The format is simple, we will seed a couple of topics and then turn it over to the user group audience. Come prepared to answer the following question when asked: “Tonight’s user group will be successful if Mark and Mark talk about _________!”. We will stay as long as it takes and get as technical as you want. Bring extra popcorn! Some sample topics and discussions could include: · Azure roadmap · Data Platform roadmap · Share experiences of interesting customer projects – Data and Cloud · What does the cloud mean to you, your company and your future as DBA, developer, manager, etc. · Etc. It will be an open and honest discussion so no tweeting, no blogging, no pictures, etc. Having fun is a requirement.
