Featured Presentation

SQL Server on Linux

Speaker: Shannon Lowder, Lead Data Analytics Consultant Allegient

Summary: The next version of SQL Server supports installs on Linux. How is this possible? We’ll briefly tour Linux from the Data Professional’s point of view. Then we’ll talk through some of the new terminology that explains how Microsoft was able to bring SQL to the Linux community. We’ll spin up a new instance of SQL on top of Linux and briefly kick the tires to see what we can and cannot do with this new deployment. I’ll also share with you some resources for getting started with Linux and start testing your own SQL server instances on Linux!

About Shannon: For over 15 years Shannon Lowder has been spotting patterns and learning ways to work smarter instead of harder. He started with development and moved into database administration. Using TSQL, Database Jobs and PowerShell, he automated himself out of contracts quickly. As Business Intelligence became a greater demand, he moved into SSIS, SSRS, and SSAS development. Early on, he tried using PowerShell and .Net to automate BI Development. Later those efforts turned to Biml. After founding a startup six years ago, he finds himself a data platform consultant, designing and guiding other professionals to build highly automated enterprise solutions. Today, he is a Biml Hero candidate and is awaiting the final approval for the award.
