Title: Data at the Edge: IoT, SQL Edge, and Raspberry Pi


It’s a tough world out there and SQL Edge just might be the database you need! Whether it’s sitting inside discrete devices on an oil rig in the Gulf, or flying thousands of feet in the air, SQL Edge can do the hard stuff. Using a Raspberry Pi 4, I’ll be going through the setup, installation, and testing of SQL Edge including the Azure components.

A little bit about Rowland:

Azure Data, Analytics and AI geek in learn-it-all mode. I’ve worked in appdev, infrastructure, and the data disciples during my career. My focus for the last 20 years has been focused on all aspects of data and most recently – AI/ML.

In addition to Microsoft’s Azure Data Platform and SQL Server, my work has included other platforms such as IBM Mainframes, Oracle, Postgres, MySql and many other products/technologies.

Here’s Rowland!!!
