After a successful TechDays
Hong Kong the week before last, I am off to Bangalore today to speak at Tech
Ed India 2012! Besides the usual running around and talking with customers, partners,
attendees, and MVPs, I’ll be doing three breakout sessions:
Wednesday @ 12:15 : Beyond Scrum: Kanban and Software Kaizen
This is a slight modification of my Introduction to Kanban talk, here are the slides
for that one:
On Wednesday afternoon at 2:15, I’ll be doing a session on Big
Data Processing with SQL Server 2012 and Hadoop. I don’t really have any
slides for this one besides a few from MS DPE, I plan on using all my time in demos.
I’ll be talking about Hadoop on Azure,
columnstore indicies, data warehouse improvements, and other things that will help
you deal with large amounts of data like table partitioning (I know, I know, “Big
Data” does not always mean “Big” data. )
This will be a fun session, come see me screw up some live demos.
Lastly, on Thursday at 4:30, I’ll be doing a session on Agile
Estimation. I’ve done this one in India a few times before, but my first
time at TechEd India. Here are the slides:
If you can’t make that session, I did it last year at TechEd North America and it
was live streamed, so the recording is here:
See you all in Bangalore!
