DevSpace Conference 2017 Recap

Last week on 13th-14th October, I presented at the DevSpace Conference held at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL.

DevSpace is an annual developer’s conference that takes place in Huntsville, Alabama.  DevSpace offers talks on a variety of languages, offering attendees the ability to improve their skills within their daily technology of choice and the ability to become familiar with new technologies. Combine this with talks on soft skills and processes, DevSpace provides an outstanding value to the attendees.


The event was neatly organized. The facility was really nice and all the talks were in huge sized ballrooms which had speakers, microphone, speaker podium. Who does not want to present in such nice rooms right?

I was humbled to have got the opportunity to present 2 talks during this event —

  • Making developers lives easier with SQL Server 2016
  • Increasing your Coding Speed in SQL Server Management Studio 17

Thanks to all those who attended my sessions. I got couple of emails/tweets asking for the presentation slides and demo scripts. So here it goes —

In case you have any questions, please let me know. I will be happy to help.

Due to other commitments, I was not able to make it to the Day 2 of the Conference – but saw lot of nice tweets about the various sessions. This was my 1st time attending DevSpace and I hope to be back next year. I met with lot of people, had some great discussions and also made some new contacts. Thanks to Chris Gardner and his team for putting together such a fabulous event.
