A couple weeks ago, I learned my proposal for a spotlight session entitled "Applied SSIS Design Patterns" had been accpeted by the PASS Summit 2009 speaker selection committe. Cool! I've never done a PASS Summit spotlight session.
The abstract for the presentation follows:
Applied SSIS Design Patterns
"Design Patterns" is more than a trendy buzz phrase; design patterns are a way of breaking down complex development projects into manageable tasks. They lend themselves to several development methodologies and apply to SSIS development. Chances are you're using your own design patterns now! In this spotlight session, Andy Leonard defines design patterns applicable to SSIS, and then demonstrates their use to develop SSIS solutions. The session is designed for those with little or no exposure to design patterns or application development methodologies; but with good experience in SSIS. The goal is to introduce the science, terminology, and philosophy of design patterns to those wishing to learn more; then demonstrate how to leverage the principles just described by applying them to every day SSIS development. Demonstrations will also include migration through the application lifecycle, deployment, and maintenance.
There are lots of other cool spotlight sessions. Check them out here, and I hope to see you at the PASS Summit 2009!
