Dear Data Platform Community,

COVID-19 has the world firmly under control and of course our events from PASS Deutschland e.V. are also affected. Unfortunately, we had to make the decision to cancel SQL Saturday Munich 2020, but still want to serve the Microsoft Data Platform Community with high-quality content and take the opportunity to continue the new virtual event format.

After the success of the Data Blaster Community Conference (DBCC) in June, which was the alternative to SQL Saturday Rheinland, we will be organizing an event with a similar setup. This time it will be the DBCC International Version!

On Friday October 23rd, 2020 the time has come to continue the virtual conference format on an international level as an alternative to SQL Saturday Munich. In three parallel tracks, 21 short lectures are planned for you, which represent many topics from the Data Platform in a varied format and provide exciting content for both beginners and advanced participants.

Our goal is not to simply deliver “normal” conference presentations online, but to present you with an entertaining online conference. The Teams links that you need to participate in the conference will be inserted on this page a few days before the conference. By the way, you don’t have to register, anyone who clicks on the corresponding team link can simply participate.

The links to join the sessions through Microsoft Teams will be posted on this page shortly before the event.
