We are proud to host a meetup featuring the two Norwegian speakers accepted to SQLNexus this year. 

Featured Presentation:

Diving into your Azure Data Lake with U-SQL

Helge Rege Gårdsvoll, BI Architect NHO

Microsoft introduced a new SQL dialect with Azure Data Lake Analytics and U-SQL. This session will introduce the core concepts of U-SQL and how it fits in a ELT pattern. With the familiarity of SQL and extensibility of C#, and a scalability to hundreds or thousands of Analytics Units U-SQL has great abilties. But using a script based transformation language has several pitfalls, and this session will cover some of the dos and don’ts based on practical experience with using the language.

About Helge:
BI Architect at NHO and responsible for architecting and building data platform in Azure.

Don’t cross the streams! (A closer look at Stream Analytics.)

Johan Ludvig Brattås, Lead Solutions Architect Capgemini

So you’ve decided to get into the Internet of Things and stream data from your devices into Azure. And now you want to use Azure Stream Analytics (ASA) to analyze and aggregate your data. Join me in this session to learn how to develop and debug your ASA queries and the possibilities and limitations of the language. We will look at the different input and output choices and when to use which one.
