As we all are excited to experience general availability of SQL Server 2016, let’s make 03rd June 2016 as worthwhile moments with “SQL Server 2016 Launch event and Discovery day“, in association with Microsoft and SQLPASS.

This is a full day event and seating is limited with compulsory registration. The day is filled with the foundation of Microsoft’s data strategy, encompassing innovations that transform data into intelligent action. With no doubt you  will walk away with best practice examples about high performance, high scale data platform for your demanding applications, not to mention lots of networking with fellow SQL Server peers.

We will have Data Platform MVPs to tell us about new features and exciting enhancements from SQL Server 2016 and this is your chance to venture into endless opportunities to build insights on your data. Please note this is not an ordinary user group meeting, you will beasked to participate and solve a problem using SQL Server and PASS data (near real-world). This is to get you all involved and gather tons of data platform knowledge.

As a token of appreciation for your hard work and effort, the winners from Show & Tellpresentation (see agenda below) will receive an exciting grand prize, and Microsoft SWAG to other attendees.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided free of charge (thanks to Microsoft).
