We are excited to announce our sessions for SQL Cruise Alaska 2018. Since 2010 and our first SQL Cruise event our Technical Leaders consist of Leaders in the SQL Server Community; Microsoft Certified Masters, Microsoft SQL Server Most-Valuable Professionals, VMware V-Experts and Microsoft SQL Server Maestros. Furthermore the structure of SQL Cruise means that you’ll never have a Student to Leader ratio greater than 4:1. You’ll never receive this amount of attention from, or exposure to, instructors of this caliber in any other training platform centered around the Microsoft SQL Server platform. Our former Cruisers assert that the core benefit of SQL Cruise is the informal time spent outside of classes – in one-on-one time with fellow Cruisers and Technical Leaders as well as in structured Office Hours periods used for digging deeper into the sessions presented on the cruise or in resolving issues being faced back in your office. However this does not mean we don’t provide structured class time. Most of those structured sessions for 2017 have now been selected and their abstracts are provided below. We will update this page as additional details are finalized.
Join us on Norwegian Cruise Line’s brand new Alaskan flagship: The NCL Bliss as we depart from Seattle, WA with Alaskan stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway.

Handling date and time data using T-SQL is an important area for T-SQL practitioners to know. Almost every table in your database has date and time data, and almost every piece of T-SQL code that you need to write has to deal with date and time data. There are many challenges and complexities when working with date and time data related to writing both correct and efficient code. This session covers date and time types and functions, challenges and best practices, system versioned-temporal tables, and querying tasks.
Join us on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Escape as we depart from Miami with port stops in Jamaica, The Cayman Islands two stops in The Bahamas. Enjoy training as we travel through the deep blues of the Caribbean Sea. Seven days packed with training, networking, and consulting by our Technical Leads as well as plenty of fun while on land are on deck. As always we get back to the training and our deep dive Office Hours when the ship leaves port at the end of the day. Due to our active hurricane season we will only have two sea days on our revised itinerary so we will also have class for a half day while in Nassau, The Bahamas. This will be our first dual track event with tracks specifically for Data Pros and Application Developers.
