I’m proud to announce that I will be be presenting pre-conference workshop at Data Platform Virtual Summit 2020 split into Two four hour sessions on 30 November and 1 December! This one won’t let you down!

Here is the start and stop times in various time zones:

Time Zone Start Stop

IST 3.30 AM (+1) 7.30 AM (+1)
AEDT 9.00 AM (+1) 1.00 PM (+1)

The workshop is “Kubernetes Zero to Hero – Installation, Configuration, and Application Deployment”

Abstract: Modern application deployment needs to be fast and consistent to keep up with business objectives, and Kubernetes is quickly becoming the standard for deploying container-based applications fast. In this day-long session, we will start container fundamentals and then get into Kubernetes with an architectural overview of how it manages application state. Then you will learn how to build a cluster. With our cluster up and running, you will learn how to interact with our cluster, common administrative tasks, then wrap up with how to deploy applications and SQL Server. At the end of the session, you will know how to set up a Kubernetes cluster, manage a cluster, deploy applications and databases, and how to keep everything up and running.

PS: This class will be recorded, and the registered attendee will get 12 months streaming access to the recorded class. The recordings will be available within 30 days of class completion.

Announcing EightKB 2021

The first EightKB back in July was a real blast. Five expert speakers delivered mind-melting content to over 1,000 attendees!

We were honestly blown away by how successful the first event was and we had so much fun putting it on, we thought we’d do it again 🙂

The next EightKB is going to be on January 27th 2021 and the schedule has just been announced!

EightKB Schedule

Once again we have five top-notch speakers delivering the highest quality sessions you can get! Expect a deep dive into the subject matter and demos, demos, demos!

Registration is open and it’s completely free! You can sign up for the next EightKB here!

We also run a monthly podcast called Mixed Extents where experts from the industry join us to talk about different topics related to SQL Server. They’re all on YouTube or you can listen to the podcasts wherever you get your podcasts!

EightKB and Mixed Extents are 100% community driven with no sponsors…so, we’ve launched our own Mixed Extents t-shirts! Any money generated from these t-shirts will be put straight back into the events.

EightKB was setup by Andrew Pruski (b|t), Mark Wilkinson (b|t), and myself as we wanted to put on an event that delved into the internals of SQL Server and we’re having great fun doing just that 🙂

Hope to see you there!
