Graph Databases for DBAs  (Level 200)
Graph database capability was added to SQL Server 2017 and is being improved upon in SQL Server 2019.  This session will introduce you to graph database T-SQL additions, Node and Edge table types and how to put them to use in practical examples useful to DBA’s and data analysts.

Building Custom SQL Server Container Images  (Level 300)
Database containers are becoming increasingly popular to quickly create SQL Server instances and lower infrastructure costs. Although Microsoft provides many Windows and Linux SQL Server container images, these do not always include the needed SQL Server version, features, and tools required for the task at hand. This session will detail considerations building custom containers that can be deployed on-prem and to Azure for specialized needs.
