It has been a quiet past few months while my family has adjusted to having two new additions (twins!), but I have slowly been working my way back into several speaking events. Having said that January is a busy month of events and I thought I would share them in case you are interested in attending any of them.
Group: South East Michigan SQL Server User Group
Topic: Creating Dashboards with PerformancePoint Services
This is a user group that I will be speaking virtually for but is based in Detroit. I’m really looking forward to this one for a couple reasons. First, the group is run by Joe Fleming (@MuadDBA) who is a great guy. I’ve actually spoke for the group several months ago while Brian Knight and I were in Detroit for a SSAS Workshop. The group is also run by Rick Brewis who is by far one of the best MS Technology Specialist I’ve met. The other reason I’m looking forward to this event is because I really love the topic. PerformancePoint is such a fun tool and I love showing it off to people and see the “wow” in their eyes as they imagine using it themselves.
Group: Pragmatic Works Webinar
Topic: Extending Reporting Services with Custom CodeThis webinar is free and is a part of the webinar series that Pragmatic Works runs twice a week. This session is designed to give you a preview of one of topics that will be discussed in the new Pragmatic Master SSRS 2008 class. The class will be taught later in January and is basically and Advanced Reporting Services class… but hey Master is better for marketing.
Date: 01/30/2012 – 02/02/2012
Group: Pragmatic Works Training
Topic: Pragmatic Master SSRS 2008This class is a 4 day class that is 3 hours a day. It is designed as “next step” from the traditional SSRS 2008 class that Pragmatic Works offers. This is considered an Advanced class so be prepared for more difficult topics than traditional Reporting Services sessions. Topics will include .Net integration, reporting off a cube and scaling Reporting Services.
