I'm organizing the Data track at the summer time MusicCityTech.com conference, along with Louis Davidson and Joe Webb. The conference has grown to about 1000 attendees in previous years with Agile and Code tracks. This year we're adding data and data management topics and I'd be thrilled if you could join us. Note that session submissions are not restricted to SQL Server topics but can include Analytics, Visualization, Design, database engineering, NoSQL topics, Big Data topics, database coding & admin best practices, AI, ML, and more.
The event will run from 31-May-2018 to 02-Jun-2018 (a lovely time of year in Nashville) on the Vanderbilt University campus, in the heart of the tony West End district. It's a short 10 minute drive to the downtown tourist district and all of the music venues that make Nashville famous as Music City USA. We cannot offer any T&E coverage, however, there is complimentary lodging on the campus for speakers if that helps to offset any costs you might incur.
Call for speakers remains open through 01-Mar at https://sessionize.com/music-city-tech-2018/. I hope to see your submission soon!
