SQL community initiatives were started in 2004 by Amit Bansal. He travelled the length and breadth of India delivering free sessions on SQL Server. The organic growth led to the formation of SQLServerGeeks (SSG) in 2010 which gave a professional shape and structure to the community work. Under SSG, SQL Server Day events were most popular and saw a huge fan following.

In 2015, SSG organized Asia’s First SQL Conference. 50+ speakers delivered 70+ sessions in 5 tracks across 3 days for 600+ attendees. SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2015.

Continuing the success, SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2016 (SSGAS 2016) witnessed a bigger and better conference. 3 days, 5 tracks, 70+ speakers, 130+ sessions, 800+ attendees – the learning event was a grand success and embarked its position as a signature tech event of India.

With changing times, SQLServerGeeks (SSG) has transformed into DataPlatformGeeks (DPG), a broader version covering 30+ technologies in Microsoft Data Stack including Azure Data Services, ML, Cloud AI & Open Source Stack. And of course, our favorite SQL Server. SQL Server Day events are now renamed to Data Platform Day. The third edition of Asia’s largest SQL conference was renamed to Data Platform Summit (DPS). DPS 2017 was Asia’s largest Data & Analytics Conference executed in Bangalore in the month of August 2017.
3 Days, 7 Tracks, 80+ Speakers, 200 Sessions, 300 Participating Companies and 900 unique attendees.

DataPlatformGeeks continues the journey of imparting free education around Data & Analytics in more than one ways. Data Platform Day events & webinars are more popular than ever before. With 100K+ subscribers, www.DataPlatformGeeks.com offers many free learning resources for the community.
