SQL Server 2017 - Deep Dive - Bob Ward

RSVP: None

SQL Server 2017 - Deep Dive - Bob Ward

In this session I attempt the impossible: do a deep dive across the investments in SQL Server 2017 in 75 minutes! Come learn about the support for multiple operating systems and containers, what is new in the Database Engine, how Python is now integrated into SQL Server, and much more. Oh and I'll have one or two cool demos to make this real.


Bob Ward is a Principal Architect for the Microsoft Database Systems Group, which owns the development for all SQL Server versions. Bob has worked for Microsoft for 24 years, supporting and speaking on every version of SQL Server shipped from OS/2 1.1 to SQL Server 2017. He has worked in customer support as a principal escalation engineer and Chief Technology Officer (CTO), interacting with some of the largest SQL Server deployments in the world. Bob is a well-known speaker on SQL Server, often presenting talks on new releases, internals, and performance at events such as SQL PASS Summit, SQLBits, SQLIntersection, and Microsoft Ignite.
