SQLSaturday #387 Madison–April 11 #SQLSatMadison
Posted by denglishbi on March 30, 2015
“Hello Wisconsin” round 2:) We are just two weeks out now and the next SQLSaturday #387 Madison is coming up (interested, last year it was #287) on April 11, my second trip out to Madison, WI. The event officially kicks off on Friday, April 10 with three pro-conference events
- Ryan Adams: Planning a SQL Server High Availability and Disaster Recovery Plan
- David Klee: SQL Server Virtualization for VM Admins
- Mark Vaillancourt & Leonard Murphy: Getting Started with Business Intelligence in Excel
Then on Saturday the main event will begin and the schedule is loaded with 8 tracks and 40 presentations!
I will be presenting at 10:30 in Room 309 (Track 5)
In this session, we will discuss the changes that are coming and the new features that are provided with the Power BI Designer as Microsoft continues its roadmap with self-service BI. If you haven’t seen this yet, Power BI features are now available in a standalone application outside of Excel! You will see with the new designer that you will be able to easily integrate data, create stunning and interactive visualizations, and even create cloud based Power BI dashboards to share and it is even Free!!
Heading out there with me from my team is Rick Bielawski and he will be in Room 220 (Track 2) at 9:00
If you’ve never queried an XML column you definitely want to attend. While targeted to beginners this isn’t a "Just do this" session. After this hour I’d like you to truly understand even subtle nuances of basic query syntax. Seasoned veterans stand a fair chance of learning something new.
So what are you waiting for, head over to the event site and checkout what is going on and follow the hashtag #sqlsatMadison – SQLSaturday Madison #387 event home.
Hope to see you there!
