What is SQLBits?

SQL Bits was started in 2007 by a group of individuals that were passionate about the SQL Server product suite and wanted to provide much needed education to the masses. Since then its grown to be the largest Data Platform conference in the world with more speakers, hours of content and the best networking event in the industry. Unlike other conferences over 95% of the content is non marketing driven, providing real world insight into succesfully planning, building and operating a modern data platform.

The team behind SQLBits are all Data professionals working in the industry and as such ensure the content provided is what you need to be succesful. The experience spans transactional data systems through to big data, analytics AI and machine learning.

Our line-up has changed over the years of SQLBits, and from the photos below you can see how we have aged. The current crew can be found on the Who's behind SQLBits page.
