April 2012 Speaking Events

This month I’ll be out and about quite a bit with speaking events.  Thought I’d detail them quickly in case you’re in Florida or interested in attending a free webinar.  Most topics on reporting of some nature this month.

Date: 04/11/2012

Group: Microsoft Webinar Series: Twelve Days of SQL 2012

Topic: Power View (SSRS)

Power View has the capability of creating eye-popping visualizations within SharePoint 2010. It provides intuitive ad-hoc reporting that can be used by a variety of business users to make critical decisions.  This session will focus on building Power View reports and where the tool stands with the other reporting tools in the MS stack.

Date: 04/19/2012

Group: Orlando PASS Chapter

Topic: Extending Reporting Services with Custom Code

The Reporting Services expression language can be a powerful tool for customizing report data and layout, but often times you will find it is lacking functionality that is easily available in .Net. While this session is not designed to teach you .Net it will show you some commonly used .Net functions for Reporting Services. We will also talk about the difference between custom code that is embedded in a report and external assemblies imported into Reporting Services.

Date: 04/28/2012

Group: SQL Saturday #130 Jacksonville

Topic: Choosing a Microsoft Reporting Technology

The Microsoft BI stack is fairly complex, especially on the front-end. In this session, we will cover when to use PerformancePoint, Reporting Services, Power View, PowerPivot or Excel Services. You will also see a little of each of these tools in action.
