My enthusiasm for Biml must be catching because I’ve been asked to give two presentations next week.
I’ll be giving a brand new presentation on Tuesday, November 12th, at 4:30pm for the MSBIC group at the Microsoft Building in Irving, TX. This presentation is targeted towards Business Analysts, management, and other members of the data warehouse [...]
I’m happy to announce that I’ve just been elected to the North Texas SQL Server User Group Board of Directors. I owe so much to the PASS Community in general, but even more to our local group. In case you aren’t aware, the NTSSUG is one of the most active and successful groups in the [...]
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 [...]
Everyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love Data Warehousing. I’m one of those fortunate few who finds their work fascinating, and I tend to dive head first into new projects.
I was recruited to join a team on a multi-terabyte data warehousing project late last summer. I was leery to take [...]
“Shit!” I said, followed by even more graphic expletives. I lost you? Sorry, I forget that you don’t follow me around? Let me explain.

Every time I attend SQL Saturdays I am re-energized, and SQL Saturday 163 BI Edition was no different. This one was particularly special because of my precon presentation, “Data Warehousing In a Day”. I just love getting up in front of a group and teaching and it’s obvious when to the attendees.
If all of [...]
This is just a friendly plug for my friends at RedGate regarding SQL in the City, a free series of events traveling around the country. It’s a free day of training and networking led by spectacular presenters such as Steve Jones (Blog/Twitter) and Grant Fritchey (Blog/Twitter), who will be headlining the Austin event next week. [...]
Hey folks, just a quick message that I’ll be presenting this evening at North Texas SQL Server User Group. I’m presenting an updated version of “Have you got the Urge to Merge?” which I gave last month in Fort Worth. I’ve made good progress with my code which generates T-SQL Merge Statements and will be [...]
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.
This Saturday I’ll be down in Houston presenting at SQL Saturday #107. I can’t wait to hang out with some of the best minds in SQL Server, which just happen to be great friends of mine as well. The abstract for my session is below.
