I am trying to advance in the Networking field and would love recommendations on what conferences to attend in 2017.

I work with MS Sever2012 (Exchange 2010) and SQL 2012 a little but would love to learn more. I would also like to increase my security knowledge in a network (we use SonicWall).

Any suggestions and ideas would be welcome. I would prefer conferences in North American.

Thanks,

( Can only speak to the SQL Server aspects of this question )

I attended PASS Summit twice, once with EE expert ValentinoV, and had an excellent time.  Over 200 sessions in 14 time slots, plus keynotes, a huge vendor presence, and lots of fun evening parties.

Another option is a SQL Saturday, which is a local version of Summit.    Here's the schedule of the one I helped run a month ago to give you an idea of classes.  These are hosted all over the world so look at the upcoming events for one in your area.

And for some other wild training ideas check out SQL Server Training.
