SQLRally Pre-Conference Voting Is Open!


The SQLRally team has been working overtime and you can now vote on the pre-conference session you'd most like to see. What a great idea. This is a much better way to select pre-cons. This way, the SQL Server Community wins.

I submitted a pre-conference session called A Day of SSIS. You can cast your vote here.

A Day of SSIS

My session isn't a survey of the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack that hops around from topic to topic; this is a deep dive into pragmatic SSIS design, development, management, and maintenance. If you want to focus on SSIS, I encourage you to vote for and then attend my session. I share from my experiences as a one-developer shop building SSIS packages as a consultant, but I've also led a team of over 20 SSIS developers for two years. If you're the lone-gun SSIS developer, I share best practices for building and maintaining SSIS... been there and done that. If you're part of a team of developers, I feel your pain - and share in this session ways to develop SSIS that address many enterprise concerns from SDLC to source control to performance management.

You don't have to worry about me selling stuff; I am here to help. My day job keeps me plenty busy and I have no product or service other than SSIS training to promote.


There are two other good Business Intelligence sessions out there for you to consider. You get to select which sessions you'd like to see. I like this a lot! Like I said, this way the SQL Server Community wins.
