SQLBits 2020 is going digital this year - and, with less than a month away, the excitement for “the greatest data show” is only rising. It is the largest SQL Server and Microsoft Data Platform conference in Europe, bringing together customers, partners, and community members – this time as a fully virtual and interactive conference.


From September 29 to October 3, 2020, join the experts from the Microsoft SQL Server/ Azure SQL product groups for 5 days of learning and connecting with our SQL Server community.
