SSIS Training Class in Waltham, MA October 6 - 8

There are lots of things I love about training. I enjoy interacting with those enthusiastic to learn. I love watching the lights come on as students realize the solution to some issue they've battled. I really love hanging out with students durning breaks and after class - talking about ways to solve their ETL or data integration problems using SSIS!

I am honored to present From Zero To SSIS! in Waltham, MA October 6-8 in conjunction with Adam Machanic (Blog - @AdamMachanic) and his training company, Boston SQL Training. I believe the best way to learn SSIS is to get your hands on it as quickly and as much as possible. I designed this course to do just that.

First you learn the basics of SSIS. Next you learn how to load a data warehouse with SSIS. Then you learn troubleshooting, maintenance, and design patterns. I use real-world data for sources - not data generated in some lab. We hit real snags and overcome them. It's the most SSIS I can possibly pack into three days!

Visit Boston SQL Training for more information on From Zero To SSIS! I hope to see you there in October.

Thanks, I think someone from our team might be going.  

I did have a question about 2 C# projects I see called SSIS_ScriptComponent and SSIS_ScriptTask.  I have never used these projects before.  I have written Custom Components, but have never used these projects before.  Can you give me a little background on these projects?

When you open Visual Studio 2008 and create a new project under C# SSIS_ScriptComponent and SSIS_ScriptTask appear.  When you create them they create a project.  The SSIS_ScriptTask gives a ScriptMain.cs.  The code in this class is similar to the code one can see when editting a Script Component inside a .dtsx package.  the SSIS_ScriptComponent project does not create any starting class.
