The North Texas SQL Server User Group recently announced our next SQL Saturday. SQL Saturday 163 will be another business intelligence centric event, with a limited number of attendees. The last time we had an event like this, it sold out in less than 12 hours, so I’d urge everyone to sign up right away.
I won’t bother ranting yet again about how great these events are, except to say that if you aren’t taking advantage of them, you’re making a huge mistake. You won’t find better learning and networking opportunities almost anywhere, and the events are essentially free. That being said, I have another announcement to make.
Data Warehousing In A Day – Pre-Conference Seminar
I’ve been invited to give a full day pre-conference seminar on Data Warehousing. On Friday October 12th, you can join me to learn how to build a Data Warehouse from the ground up and load it efficiently. I’ll teach you the core skills you need to succeed, and the pitfalls to avoid. I’ll share the experience I’ve gained building Data Warehouses from scratch, as well as rescuing these projects from failure. For the complete abstract, head on over to Data Warehousing In A Day and take a look.
I’m really pumped about this opportunity for several reasons. The first is that I was born to teach. I really love it and people say that it shows. Second, many people have seen some of my presentations on Data Warehousing or SQL Server Integration Services and commented how they wished I would go into more depth. When giving a regular presentation of an hour to 90 minutes, it’s hard to do that. The Pre-Con is a golden opportunity to deliver both breadth and depth.
So, for the low, low price of $75, you get a full day of example and demo focused learning on Dimensional Modeling, SSIS, and more. How can you beat that?
Sheesh! I never worked for so little, except once, and that was a very noble cause. – Miracle Max
Be sure to sign up early because the space is limited and the Pre-Con will fill up fast. Also, $75 is an early bird price. On July 15th, the price goes up to $99.
So, I hope many of you will join me for Data Warehousing In A Day on Friday, October 12th and I’m looking forward to hanging out with all of you at SQL Saturday 163!
