Event description


End of support for SQL Server 2008 is almost here (ends in July!), which means it’s time to take flight on your migration strategy.

But, do you have a plan in place? What approach should you take to ensure a smooth transition?

To guide you through these questions, PASS, Microsoft, and Intel® have teamed up for a series of expert-led events, giving you all the tools you need to get to the final destination—a modern data platform.

Not only will you receive insightful views on migration, but you’ll also walk away with an actionable plan for the year ahead.

Speaker: Edward Pollock
Ed has over 17 years of experience in database and systems administration, developing a passion for performance optimization, database design, and making things go faster. He has spoken at many SQL Saturdays, 24 Hours of PASS, and PASS Summit. This led him to organize SQL Saturday Albany, which has become an annual event for New York’s Capital Region. Sharing these experiences with the community is a top priority, and encouraging everyone to take the leap into public speaking and engaging others, a passion. In his free time, Ed enjoys video games, sci-fi & fantasy, traveling, and cooking exceptionally spicy foods.

We’d like to thank our sponsors PASS, Microsoft, and Intel® for their support.

Don’t delay, space is limited!

We look forward to seeing you there!
