Posted by denglishbi on June 7, 2010

The next Minnesota SQL Server User Group meeting is coming up in a couple of weeks on Tuesday, June 15.  This month Lara Rubbelke will be presenting on the new features in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 – Report Builder 3.0, new visualizations (map report item, sparklines, data bars, indicators), new shared features (report parts and datasets), new data sources, new rendering enhancements, and more.  If you have any questions related to SSRS that you would like to have discussed and covered in the discussion please send them in advance to support@mnssug.org.


In order to RSVP for the event you will need to login to the national PASS site and click on the RSVP link.  This month our sponsor for the event is Magenic again.  Last month there was a mix-up with the food and beverage order the Papa John’s actually got sent to Davannis.

Lara will take you on a tour of all that is new in R2 including collaboration features, new visualizations, rendering enhancements, and new data sources. After this session you will wonder why they call R2 an "interim" release!

Hope to see you there! 

Also, last month we were finally able to get our first successful Live Meeting recording – PASSMN May 2010 Follow-up.  And this week the Microsoft BI Conference and TechEd is going on down in New Orleans, so there should be a lot of content and information being posted this week through Twitter (#msbic and #teched – Twitter handles) and Blogs.
