I have previously blogged that I am presenting at the PASS Business Analytics Conference. If you are looking to learn more about business intelligence and data warehousing, there is no better conference out there. And if you are looking to meet people like you in the industry and share ideas, this is the conference to go to. And one more reason, I have a $150 discount code for you: BASD9A
