Data Events in Australia and New Zealand in early 2020

Over the course of the next few weeks there are some significant events taking place that reflect technologies on the Microsoft data platform and beyond.

Thursday 13th and 14th February will see Microsoft Ignite – The Tour Sydney

Saturday 15th February 2020 will see two events – focusing on Microsoft Business Applications

Power Platform Saturday Sydney

Power Platform Saturday Melbourne.

Both Power Platform events are entirely free.

Monday 17th February 202o sees the start of the Difinty conference in Auckland, New Zealand.

There’s quite a few high profile speakers that have traveled quite some distance to speak at this event – these are both members of the Microsoft Product teams and MVP’s

The Monday(17th February 2020) and Thursday(20th February 2020) are both dedicated to several workshops with the Tuesday and Wednesday being the main conference sessions

The conference is hosted by Reza Rad and Leila Etaati of Radacad – who are hosting the conference in #Auckland for the forth time.

Saturday 22nd February 2020 will see SQL Saturday Wellington taking place. This is a 100% free event and will see a lot of the speakers from the Difinity Conference traveling to give their time to benefit the community.

The day before (Friday 21st February 2020) will see SQL Saturday Wellington pre-conference events – and while these are paid training days they are substantially discounted and offer amazing value.

Later in the year will see SQL Saturday Brisbane taking place on Saturday 30th May 2020. This year they have an amazing venue that is right in the middle of the city and really convenient for public transport.

There’s a call-for-speakers currently open for the Brisbane event as well and some great sponsors lined up. You’ll need to get a PASS membership in order to submit – but that’s free and as an added bonus will give you access to some great educational content.

Later in the year we should see additional SQL Saturdays at

  • Auckland
  • Christchurch
  • Melbourne
  • Sydney
  • Perth

Keep your eye on the SQL Saturday website for these dates and if you are so inclined then submit a session in the call for speakers.

I’m looking forward to meeting many old friends at these events and hopefully making a few new ones too.

Have a great day.
