I wrote a blog post on this subject last year when Azure SQL Database Serverless was first introduced. This year I was excited to present it for Microsoft Ignite: The Tour Singapore before it was canceled because of the growing crisis that would be COVID-19 pandemic. However, I was fortunate enough to be able to present it at SQL Saturday 922 – Wellington before more travel restrictions were put in place for various countries. I was also set to talk about it at the Philippine Data Day 2020, an event I helped organize, on 7th March at Microsoft Philippines. But by then the COVID-19 situation has grown at an alarming rate. I decided to cancel my travels to help mitigate the effects and spread of the virus.
The event went ahead as scheduled and was well attended with more than 130 in-person attendees. It was also live-streamed to 1.7K viewers. I hosted and presented virtually.
