As I started looking over my event calendar, I was amazed at how many events Magenic is sponsoring, hosting or providing speakers for over the next couple of months. As always, one of my goals is to make everyone aware of opportunities to increase their knowledge in BI and data or even network with other data pros. Not all of the events are Magenic events, but Magenic has stepped up to sponsor or provide speakers for the event. I will update this blog with more details as they become available, but I want to get you thinking about the possibilities to learn and connect.
BI Summit (Chicago, August 23, 2012)
This event is coming up very soon. Register today to hear about BI topics that matter to you as a customer and in particular as a business user. Ted Krueger ( B | T ) and Aaron Lowe ( B | T ) will be showing off some of the new Microsoft BI capabilities. I will be joining them for the round table at the end of the day. Sign up today as space is limited!
Code Mastery (Chicago, September 12, 2012)
Not to be outdone, a few weeks later Magenic’s Code Mastery event comes to Chicago. There is an opening session by Ted Krueger discussing query tuning for developers and admins alike. Then, a full track will be offered on a variety of BI topics. The speakers include your truly, James Phillips ( T ), and Aaron Lowe.
SQL Saturday #156 (Providence, September 15, 2012)
Join James Phillips at this event as well. If you see him at Code Mastery in Chicago then at SQL Saturday in Providence let him know. I am sure we all would be interested in how and why you traveled the country to hear him. He will be speaking on SSIS 2012 and loading data warehouses.
SQL Saturday #149 (Minneapolis, September 28-29, 2012)
We are loaded to bear for this event. Steve Hughes and Ted Krueger will be conducting preconference sessions. Beyond that, a number of Magenicons have submitted sessions. We expect the final list before the end of the week and I will update this post when they list is finalized. Magenic is also a Gold Sponsor for this event. Oh, and this year the precons are on Friday with the full event on Saturday. Thought we would try something new this year.
8/15/2012 UPDATE: Magenic speakers announced: Ted Krueger, Aaron Lowe, Jeff Prom and I have sessions at this event.
Code Mastery (Minneapolis, October 2, 2012)
This event is still being finalized, but hold the date! We have a BI track that includes implementing BI with SharePoint. Our speakers include Jeff Prom ( B ), Josh Owens ( T ), Curtis Smith and Greg Moser ( T ). Look for more details coming soon.
Minnesota SQL Server User Group (Minneapolis, October 14, 2012)
Magenic is the sponsor for October’s user group meeting and Jeff Prom will be speaking on Data Quality Services.
PASS Summit (Seattle, November 6-9, 2012)
And the Summit wraps up a busy fall season. I have two sessions at this conference. Ted will be a part of Ask the Experts and Birds of a Feather. A number of other Magenicon’s will also be in attendance. We will look forward to wrapping up a this fall’s data and BI community events at the Summit.
Join Magenic’s data pro’s at any of these conferences or meetings. Magenic is a huge promoter of business intelligence and data related education within the SQL Server community. We look forward to seeing you at any of these events.
