I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
On Thursday March 14th (PI Day) in Duluth GA, Audrey Hammonds and Julie Smith will put on a spectacular SSIS training event to benefit the Cloverleaf School of Atlanta.
Both Audrey and Julie are SQL Server MVP’s and have given a countless amount of their time to the SQL Server Community over the years. Visit their blog at http://datachix.com/ They have spoken at events all over the country and always draw a crowd. I have had the privelage of working with them to plan SQL Saturday 89 and SQL Saturday 111 in Atlanta.
The day of training will be split into two parts.
Part I Dimensional Modeling with Audrey
- Why Transactional databases are the way they are—Codd’s rules to live by
- Why Codd’s rules don’t work for Reporting– Kimball’s rules to live by
- Fun at the whiteboard converting a transactional model to a dimensional model.
Part II Extract Transform and Load using SSIS with Julie
- A tour of SSIS
Control Flow Basics
Data Flow Basics
- How to load Dimensions with SSIS
- How to load Facts with SSIS
- Why SSIS has got such a bad rap sometimes.
