2014 Upcoming Presentations and a Discount Code

Upcoming presentations and a discount code

2014 has come in like a tidal wave! We’re already in February, and I’m just barely recovered from the Holiday vacation.

I’ve been a busy bee here in Michigan, having presented at SQL Saturday Nashville on 1/18/2014 – Great job again, Nashville Team!! – and I’ve got another event lined up.


This weekend, on Feb 8th, 2014 I’ll be speaking at SQL Saturday #241 in Cleveland, OH! My  topic is Visual Analytics with HDInsight and Power View. This has been an area that I’ve been interested in, and playing around with it has proven to be very exciting. If you are a SQL Professional that is curious about Hadoop and Big Data this session will show how it all works, how to get HDInsight up and running quickly, and get started with Hive to begin transferring your SQL knowledge to a new technology. Finally, we’ll complete the circle with showing how to incorporate it with SSAS and use Power View to visualize the data. It will be an exciting and knowledge filled hour!

You can download my presentation materials ahead of time here. I hope to see you there!


Moving father into the future, I’ll be presenting again this year at the PASS Business Analytics Conference in San Jose, CA! This time, I’ll be showcasing Master Data Services (MDS) and Data Quality Services (DQS). I’ll be giving an overview of how the technology works, how it’s set up, and then show an example of how we’ve used it in the past to help clients manage Master Data efficiently.

If you’re considering attending this event, I’ve got a special discount code for you! Using my code BASB5V, you’ll be given a $150 discount to the conference! This code can’t be used with any other discount offers, and rates rise as we get closer to the event, so register now and use this code if you are ready to go!

I’m looking forward to both of these events. If you’re attending, I’d love to get a chance to chat with you. Happy analyzing!
