The features that we will explore include OneLake, Data Factory, Data Engineering, Data Warehouse, Power BI Direct Lake, Real-Time Analytics, code notebooks, and admin and monitoring capabilities.

PreCon: Automate Deployments with Azure DevOps - Erin Dempster

Register Here

Session Details:

Developing databases is just the beginning. Once the code has been committed to source control, moving code between environments can be cumbersome in a manual environment. When multiple databases are involved or database changes need to be deployed with other changes, tracking the proper builds of each solution is critical. Otherwise, the quality assurance team may test incompatible builds, leading to wasted time and potentially allowing unsupported changes to be deployed together. This session will introduce database developers and administrators to build and release pipelines in Azure DevOps. Through multiple development tools, participants will gain hands-on experience working with a demonstration database to deploy to a target environment. Dev Ops has many nuances and advanced settings, which this course will not cover.

Sponsorship Plan

SQL Saturday Minnesota 2023 #1054 is an entire day conference related to the SQL Server and data technology. SQL Saturday is organized by the PASS MN User Group, a 501c6 professional association non-profit organization.

With the help of a lot of Volunteers, we provide excellent sessions, refreshments, and lunch giving ample opportunities to interact with local professionals. We work hard to ensure that the SQLSaturday is an excellent experience for all, especially our Sponsors, without whom the event would not happen.

This is our 1st in-person SQL Saturday event since 2019. SQL Saturday Minnesota used to proudly boast one of the largest and broadest events in the country and in 2023 we are looking to rebuild those heights. With the support of our Sponsors, it remains free and open to the public. We anticipate hitting the ground running and hope for a return of attendance for SQLSaturday comparable to previous years. The volunteer organizers of SQL Saturday Minnesota 2023 are proud to offer the following Sponsorship opportunities.

Additional Information

SQL Saturday Minnesota 2023 is produced by and for the community of SQL developers, administrators, and affiliated disciplines. Event Sponsorship does not entail oversight or selection of topics or content.

While SQLSaturday Minnesota requires funds to operate, Sponsorship is also accepted as 'in-kind' contributions where the goods or services provided are those needed for SQL Saturday. We are especially interested in community groups helping plan and publicize the event. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions about how you can help.

About 'in-kind' Sponsorships: We distinguish between Sponsors that provide 'cash', and those that supply 'in-kind' Products and Services for raffles or other use. Our reasoning is thus:

Important Deadlines

Sponsorship payments must be received in full no later than September 1, 2023 to guarantee inclusion in print and display materials.

The Raffle - Your Key to Success

The biggest challenge with community events is capturing contact information for follow-ups. Few attendees will have business cards, and having them handwrite their info often leads to a 30% or higher loss due to the inability to read what they wrote! Instead, we provide attendees with pre-printed raffle tickets containing their name and email address; they can then put these tickets into the raffle box at each sponsor's table to win a prize. This gives you 100% readability and 0% loss! It is also more effective than any other technique for capturing contact information, including scanning their name badge.

Because we want you to be successful, all our sponsorship levels include the requirement that you provide a prize of at least $100 in value and a full-color 8-1/2 x 11 flyer highlighting the prize(s) you are providing for the raffle.

We will have one table for all absentee vendors in the same areas as our onsite vendors. Raffle ticket collection will proceed through the end of the day. If someone from your team is present, we'll ask them to draw the winning ticket. Otherwise, we'll select the ticket. Attendees must be present to win. If there is a physical prize, we'll give it to them. Otherwise, we'll forward their contact information for you to follow up with (for license keys, etc.)
