We are less than two weeks away from SQL Saturday #149 in Minneapolis on September 29, 2012 with two preconference sessions on September 28. In case you haven’t heard, we are having the main event on a Saturday. Yes, the precons are on Friday this year. Check out the details here. I am really excited about this event as we have a great group of local, regional, and national speakers at this event. There are nine rooms being used for this event, so go out to the site and build your schedule.
The following Tuesday, Magenic is hosting CodeMastery with a BI track at the Microsoft Technology Center in Edina, MN. This event includes a sessions on managing the BI stack in SharePoint and xVelocity. The other track is Windows 8 development with sessions on WinRT and Game Development.
I’m a Speaker at Both Events
Besides plugging these two awesome events on their own, I am also a speaker for both events. Here is what I will be speaking on at each event:
In this session, I will walk through the window functions enabled by the OVER clause in SQL Server. Come join me as we celebrate the SQL Server 2012 release of analytic functions and expansion of aggregate functionality to support tasks such as running totals and previous row values. Thankfully, this is a demo heavy session as it is one of the last sessions of the day.
The next week, I will be presenting on data mining tools which Microsoft has made available to us in SSAS and Excel. The goal of this session is to help developers understand how to implement data mining algorithms into their business intelligence solutions.
I look forward to seeing you at both events. They are priced right, FREE!
