Earlier in the year, I was invited to participate in the steering committee for Dog Food Con as a SQL/BI track owner. This Microsoft technology focused event will be hosted at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio on September 29-30, 2014. The event last year had 585 attendees over 2 days. We are targeting 800 attendees this year.
A few days ago, the Call for Speakers was announced. We are looking for abstracts on Microsoft technologies like Powershell, SQL Server / Business Intelligence, Windows 8.1, Hyper-V, Exchange, Sharepoint, Lync and many others. Special topics we are hoping to have presenters on this year include:
- Office on the iPad
- Project Roslyn and .NET open source Foundation
- Hosting DNN, WordPress, Linux, or Oracle on Azure
- GitHub integration with TFS
The call for speakers will be open until July 9. Speakers will be notified on July 14. Please consider submitting an abstract paper today.
