Please join me in welcoming Wee-Hyong Tok to the second edition of Asia’s largest SQL Conference, the one who needs no introduction in the SQL world, yet I want to take the privilege of introducing him to the SQL community in Asia!

Wee-Hyong Tok has decades of database systems experience, spanning academia and industry, including deep experience driving and shipping products and services that span distributed engineering teams from Asia and the United States.

Before joining Microsoft, Tok worked on in-database analytics, demonstrating how association rule mining can be integrated into a relational database management system, Predator-Miner, which enables users to express data mining operations using SQL queries and provides opportunities for better query optimization and processing.


Tok is instrumental in driving data mining boot camps in Asia and was honored as a Microsoft SQL Server Most Valuable Professional for several consecutive years because of his active contribution to the database community in Asia. He has co-authored several books, including the first book on Azure machine learning, Predictive Analytics with Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, and has also published more than 20 peer-reviewed academic papers and journals. Tok holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the National University of Singapore.

Wee-Hyong will be bringing an ocean of knowledge to the SSGAS2016.

Wee-Hyong will be delivering a breakout session at SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2016 in CLOUD and BIGDATA tracks. Wee-Hyong is equally excited to be part of Asia’s largest SQL conference.

Simply put, what a privilege to continue announcing SQL rockstars for SSGAS 2016. The battery of power-packed speakers is just getting better at the SQL community in Asia.

What does it mean for you? This is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear him, meet him and learn from the expert!

Let your boss know today that Wee-Hyong Tok is coming to SSGAS 2016 and you want to attend his session – THIS IS UN-MISS-ABLE!

And I hope you have not missed the highlights from SSGAS 2015.
