As it stands, I’m currently getting organised to head to SQL Saturday #105 which takes place tomorrow (March 24th) in Dublin. This is the closest SQL Saturday event to Edinburgh so far, so I jumped at the chance to go. SQL Saturday is a regular event, created by the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) to provide SQL Server professionals and enthusiasts with opportunities to network with colleagues and experience some top quality training, while also being able to grow their own membership.
Tomorrow’s event is set to cover 3 different tracks, DBA, Developer and Business Intelligence (BI). There are plenty of interesting topics on the agenda on all 3 tracks, so it’s likely to be a tough choice which sessions to attend. To top it all off, a number of the sessions are set to focus on new features and advancements in SQL Server 2012. Considering that I’ve been doing a lot of work with SQL 2012 lately, and the new BI features in particular, I’m especially keen to attend some of the sessions concerning new developments in SSRS and SSAS.
The bad news is, unfortunately, an early flight in the morning. So that’s it for now, but I’ll post a follow up over the coming days, to highlight some of the experiences and knowledge gained over the weekend.
