Data Platform Summit 2018 Announced (Bangalore, India)

Data Platform Summit (formerly SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit) has become a festival for many. Just like we celebrate Diwali – one of the most popular festivals in India – DPS too, is a celebration time. Let me explain. How do you know that a learning event is gaining more popularity than ever? How do you know that the previous years were awesome for the delegates? In short, how do you know that the event was ‘really’ a grand success?

By the count of delegates? By the feedback? Something else?

Well, the biggest win for the DPS, DPG & eDominer Team is when we start getting emails from Jan 1st week: “Hi, are the dates for the summit this year announced?”.

Yes, when past delegates check back, that is true success. It is that moment of satisfaction and realization that we are doing something good for the community.

So here we are, with Data Platform Summit 2018 – the 4th edition of Asia’s Only Data & Analytics Summit focused on Microsoft Data Platform + Open Source Data Technologies.
