I’m going to be doing a lot of speaking at various events over the next few months, and so I thought I would let you know about where I’ll be in case you want to attend.
Next week I’m doing a mini-tour of four Scandinavian user groups in a week:
- Oslo, 17:15 Monday September 21st 2015, “The New Power BI: Is It Any Good?”
- Malmö, 14:00 Wednesday September 23rd 2015, “Best practices for collecting, combining and analysing data with Power Query”
- Göteborg, 14:00 Thursday September 24th 2015, “Best practices for collecting, combining and analysing data with Power Query”
- Stockholm, 14:00 Friday September 25th 2015, “Best practices for collecting, combining and analysing data with Power Query”
I’m going to be speaking at two SQL Relay events in October. SQL Relay is a series of one-day SQL Server events held in various places all over the UK and is always well worth attending. I’ll be speaking at:
MDX Training Course
There are still a few places available on my “Introduction to MDX” training course in London, running from October 12th-14th. It will teach you everything you need to know about MDX queries and calculations for Analysis Services, starting from the absolute basics and going up to SCOPE statements. Check out the Technitrain site for details of other courses including Allan Hirt’s Mission Critical SQL Server, Rafal Lukawiecki’s Practical Data Science With Cortana Analytics, and more to be announced soon.
My MDX and SSAS cube design and performance tuning courses are also available in video form from Project Botticelli, and you can get a 10% discount if you register using the code TECHNITRAIN2015
PASS Summit 2015
It is always an honour to be selected to speak at the PASS Summit, and this year I’ll be doing two sessions: “Using Power Query to build a Reporting Solution in Excel” and “Analysing audience reaction to the PASS Summit keynote”. The latter should be particularly fun, since it will involve me using Bing Pulse, Power BI, Excel, NodeXL and Azure Machine Learning in a lot of demos! I hope to be making a guest appearance in a third session, which I’m also excited about, but I’ll leave that as a surprise…
