Exactly a week ago, 300+ Geeks attended Data Platform Day in Microsoft Office, Bellandur, Bengaluru. And today, we are ready with our updates of Data Platform Day in Microsoft Office, Gachibowli, Hyderabad. Two back-to-back house-full events in two different cities! Unbelievable to pull off, but thanks to the DataPlatformGeeks community, we do it with ease every time. The updates are given below, do not miss out the pictures and details:

The entire eDominer team travelled to Hyderabad on August 8th, early morning at 1.30 am to execute yet another amazing Data Platform Day of Feb 9, in Microsoft Office, Gachibowli. The event saw more than 200+ Data & Analytics Professionals (seating capacity for only 200 available at the venue), with attendees travelling from nearby cities as well. Yes, this event was houseful too. Great to see how popular the DataPlatformGeeks events have become. The Feb 9th event had 9 multi-track sessions on Data Science, Azure, Business Intelligence and Advanced Analytics, Database Administration and Development. Special thanks to our Community Partner & Supporter, Microsoft and to our Knowledge Partner for the event, Hyderabad-based Edvancer, for supporting the event.

The registrations as usual began at 8:00 am and the speakers took over at 9:00 am. Parallel sessions started in 2 rooms on Machine Learning with Azure Databricks and Advanced Analytics with Azure Analysis Services by Suvarna Raju Madhey (Microsoft) & Prakash Krishnaswamy (Microsoft) and Siva Reddy (Microsoft), respectively. Both the sessions were full house.

After the first set of sessions concluded, we had a grand community launch of Data Platform Summit 2019. Just like how we did in Bengaluru, revealing the theme and logo of DPS 2019, with Amit Bansal the founder of the conference doing the honours.

DPS 2019 Dates:

Pre-Cons – August 19, 20 & 21.
Summit – August 22, 23 & 24.

Venue – Radisson BLU, Outer Ring Road, Bengaluru.

The third technical session of the day was by Lalit Sachan (Co-Founder, Edvancer) on “Want to Upgrade To a Career in AI?”, it was a joint session with both rooms combined, that included all the 200+ attendees. Edvancer’s demo-based session was an instant hit, and the Geeks wanted to know more about career-path in AI/Data Science. Edvancer also announced a discount for their heavily-in-demand Certification Course on Edvancer-TCS Certified Artificial Intelligence Specialist, only for the DataPlatformGeeks of Hyderabad Data Platform Day event.

After that session, we had a group picture with the Geeks holding the DPS 2019 catalogue.
It was then time to grab some lunch. Apart from enjoying the lunch, the Geeks also had a chance to network and meet like-minded people, interact with speakers and make connections for life.

The second half of the sessions commenced immediately after lunch. In-depth Machine Learning with Azure Data bricks by Pramod Singla (Microsoft) & Sakshi Chourasia (Microsoft) in Room 1 and DB Maintenance by Vijay Reddy (Regional Mentor, DPG) in Room 2, were the parallel sessions.

The next two parallel sessions were SQL Server Indexes by Satya Ramesh (SQLMaestros) in Room 1 and SQL Server Data Partitioning by Vijay Reddy (Regional Mentor, DPG).

The last session was a joint session by Amit Bansal (SQLMaestros) on Execution Plan Analysis & Query Tuning.

The team ended the day with a lot of give aways which included bags, bottles, pen-stands, posters and the BIG TICKET which gives access to complete 3 days of DPS 2019.
