Our Glorious History

Without past, there would be no future. An outcome of persistent efforts and indomitable perseverance resulted in Asia’s First SQL Conference in the year 2015. At SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2015 (SSGAS 2015), 50+ speakers delivered 70+ sessions in 5 tracks across 3 days for 800+ attendees –a remarkable beginning!

Continuing the success, SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2016 (SSGAS 2016) witnessed a bigger and better conference. 3 days, 5 tracks, 70+ speakers, 130+ sessions,1000+ attendees – the learning event was a grand success and embarked its position as a signature tech event of India. The data & analytics professionals in India learnt from the who’s who of the industry. Microsoft SQL CAT Team, SQL TIGER Team, Global Black Belt Team, Product Engineers from Redmond, USA – name it and they were there.

The visionary keynotes from the Corporate Vice Presidents of Microsoft Data Group (Redmond, USA) were an icing on the cake. Overall, an unmatched & unparalleled learning & networking experience. With changing times, SQLServerGeeks (SSG) has transformed into DataPlatformGeeks (DPG), a broader version covering 30+technologies in Microsoft Data Platform stack.

The third conference was thus re-named Data Platform Summit 2017. DPS 2017 saw the IT Minister of Karnataka inaugurating the 3-day learning event, followed by a marvelous keynote by Mr. Narendra Bhandari (GM, DX Experience, Microsoft). More than 200 sessions were delivered by 80+ speakers on the following tracks – Database Administration, Database Development, Data Science, Cloud, IoT & NoSQL, Big Data & VLDBs and Professional Development.
