Just wanted to give my readers, both of you, a quick heads up on my upcoming presentations, both of which deal with BimlScripting.
“Biml Basics” Tuesday Night at NTSSUG
Tuesday night (10/29) I’m presenting the final session (for now) of my Data Warehousing Basics and Beyond series for the North Texas SQL Server User Group. We’ve covered the basics on how to create both Dimension and Fact Tables, as well as how to load them with SSIS. This final presentation will be on Biml Basics. We’ll discuss what Biml is, the basics of how to extend it with script, and why you should adopt it. I think everyone will find it interesting and this session will serve as a good pre-lude to my upcoming presentation at SQL Saturday 255.
SQL Saturday #255 – Arlington, TX
Our next SQL Saturday is this week (11/2/2013) and I’ll be volunteering as usual. The regular event is free to everyone and we still have room for more attendees, so I urge everyone in the area to attend. I’ll be presenting the following at the event:
Biml – The Next Step in Agile Data Warehousing
Business Intelligence Markup Language is literally changing the way we think about Data Warehouse design and ETL. In this interactive, demo focused presentation you’ll see how you can rapidly iterate through the Data Warehouse Development Cycle and provide ROI almost immediately. Learn how you can use Biml Script to automatically create staging tables, SSIS Packages, and other necessary objects during the modeling process.
Also, we are offering three pre-conference sessions on Friday (11/1) from well known experts in their field, which you umm… may have heard of. 🙂 They are an excellent value at $120 for a full day of training. The speakers and session titles are as follows:
A Day of SSIS 2012 – Andy Leonard
Query Perfomance Tuning – Grant Fritchey
Data Science Crash Course- Drew Minkin
