Upcoming Presentations

I am delighted to announce that I will be presenting an Introduction to SQL Server Reporting Services Report Models at two different events in October. I have implemented report models at clients and seen how they can be a great way to empower users to be more self-sufficient.

The events are:

Twin Cities Code Camp

This takes place on October 9th and 10th at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. This is my first time presenting at this semi-annual event.

SQL Saturday 58 – Minnesota

This event takes place on FRIDAY October 29th at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, Minnesota. This is Minnesota’s first SQL Saturday. Hazzah! I affectionately refer to it as SQL Friturday. Yeah. We’re a little different here in Minnesota. Well…I’m a lot different, but most people are a little different. The schedule for this is not yet posted but I have verbal confirmation that my session was accepted.

I am learning a lot more about report models while creating this presentation. The old adage really holds true: “You can pick your friends and you can pick you nose. But you can’t pick your friend’s nose.” Wait. That’s not the one. It’s this one: “If you want to learn a lot about a subject, do a presentation on it.” Yeah. The second one.
