Just wanted to post a quick note/invitation to everyone to come join us on Thursday, May 12th from 5:45-7:00 for the SQLRally Overdrive: Birds of a Feather Discussions event.
We’ll have several tables, each with a dedicated expert in the field hosting conversations. Want to delve into some shop talk about PowerShell? Curious about how Analysis Services are being setup by other folks in the field? Care to swap architecture design ideas about SSIS with others? Well this is the place to do this and more! Here’s the list of folks who have graciously volunteered to host tables at this event:
Mike Davis (Blog | Twitter) – SSRS
Grant Fritchey (Blog | Twitter) – Indexing/Performance Tuning
Adam Jorgensen (Blog | Twitter)- SSAS
Devin Knight (Blog | Twitter) – SSIS
Andie Letourneau (Blog | Twitter) – Women in Technology
Brian Moran (Blog | Twitter)- Professional Development
Jorge Segarra (Blog | Twitter) – Administration

So you’re going to SQLRally in Orlando next week? Want to take advantage of ALL of the awesome opportunities presented? In addition to all of the amazing training content you’ll see at the event itself, we’re holding some great stuff after-hours on Thursday. We’re calling this SQLRally OverDrive!
These are three different panel events being hosted by members of the SQL community. You have your choice of three cool events to choose from:
Do you have a data warehouse initiative in your current organization and looking for a way to learn how to properly build and support it? Would you like to learn how to do this straight from the Masters of the BIverse themselves? Well you’re in luck! Next month at SQLRally there’s going to be a great pre-conference session held by the following:
Mike Davis (Blog | Twitter)
Devin Knight (Blog | Twitter)
Adam Jorgensen (Blog | Twitter)
Patrick LeBlanc (Blog | Twitter)
In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn from the author team of Mike Davis, Adam Jorgensen, Devin Knight, and Patrick LeBlanc how to build a data warehouse for your company and support it with the Microsoft business intelligence platform. We’ll start with how to design and data model a data warehouse including the system preparation. Then, we’ll jump into loading a data warehouse with SSIS. After SSIS, you’re ready to roll the data up and provide the slice and dice reporting with SSAS. The team will walk through cube development and data enrichment with things like key performance indicators, which are essential for your future dashboards. Lastly, we will cover how to report against the data warehouse with SSRS, including a primer in how to write MDX queries against the SSAS cube.
What you can expect to take away from this session:
- Practical knowledge of building a Dimensional Model
- Designing a simple ETL process using SSIS
- Designing a Cube
- Designing simple SSRS Reports
- Building an integrated process that fully leverages the entire MS BI stack to load a Data Warehouse.
