We are absolutely thrilled that we’ve been asked to speak at the next SQLBits conference, in Liverpool on 1st October 2011.

Alex Whittles will be presenting an introduction to PowerPivot and QlikView, showing how to get started with these in-memory analytical tools, how they differ and what their pros and cons are.

This will be Alex’s second SQLBits conference that he’s presented at.

SQLBits is the largest, and generally believed to be the best, SQL Server conference in Europe. It’s only beaten in size by PASS in the US, and welcomes the best speakers from around the World. It’s a three day conference that’s held every 6 months, covering all aspects of SQL Server from Dev to DBA and Business Intelligence. Sessions run from level 100 for the novice to level 400 for the experienced professional; you can choose your own track to cover any level of any topic that suits you.

It’s not just a place to learn new skills, it’s also a fantastic forum to network with like minded people, share a beer and generally bring some fun to the database world – if you’ve not been before then we highly recommend it.
