Upcoming News and Events

There are a lot of exciting events happening in the next 2 months that you should be involved in so I want to give you a quick run down of each event that I will either be presenting at or just attending.

Today – The release of my first book!  Knight's 24-Hour Trainer: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services

July 13 – 16 – Teaching online SSIS Class (Monday – Thursday from 2 to 5 pm EST)

July 14 – Attending PASS BI SIG (SSIS Focus Group) meeting online 12 pm EST.  Mike Davis presenting on Developing Dynamic SSIS Packages.

In this session you will learn how to make your SSIS packages dynamic, by using Configuration Files, Configuration Tables, Parent to Child Package Relationships. You will see how to use variables and expression together in all areas of a package and understand how update multiple packages with a single change without having to redeploy packages multiple times.

July 20 – 23 – Teaching online SSIS Class (Monday – Thursday from 2 to 5 pm EST)

July 21 – Attending PASS BI SIG (Data Warehousing Focus Group) meeting online 12 pm EST.  Javier Loria presenting on Contemporary alternatives for BI architectures.

August 1 – SQL Saturday Baton Rouge.  Not attending but have to plug this.  If you’ve never been to one and you live in the area or even if you don’t live in the area make this event!

August 8 – SQL Saturday South Florida.  Submitted session to speak on SSIS performance tuning.

August 29 – Jax Code Camp in Jacksonville, FL.  Great event for a great cause.  All proceeds not used for the production of the event are donated to the Wolfson Children’s Hospital.  There will be a SQL Track that I will be presenting a beginner’s SSIS session.


So now you have no reason not to get involved in something at least online!
