I just looked at the calendar and Wow! I have a lot of presentations and pre-cons coming up in the next few months. I blame Karla Landrum (Blog | @KarlaKay22 | SQLPeople) for the pre-cons – she started all this with her invitation for me to present a pre-con to SQL Saturday – Pensacola (thanks Karla!).
17-21 Oct 2011 – Farmville, VA – From Zero To SSIS!
I personally designed this five-day SSIS course to teach you SSIS from the ground up! The course features hands-on labs and focuses on the parts of SSIS used most in real-world development. Details here.
18 Aug 2011 – SQL Solstice – Raleigh, NC – A Day of SSIS
Developed by Andy Leonard to train technology professionals in the fine art of using SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to build data integration and Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) solutions. The training is focused around lectures and emphasizes a practical approach. The target audience for this training is database professionals, application developers, and business intelligence practitioners interested in acquiring or expanding their existing SSIS skill set. No experience with SQL Server or SQL Server Integration Services is required before attending this training. It is helpful (but not required) that students possess some knowledge of and experience with relational databases. SQL Server knowledge / experience will be more helpful than experience and knowledge with other technologies.
At the conclusion of the training, attendees will have been exposed to:
Using SSIS to develop data integration solutions.
Using SSIS to load a database table.
Troubleshooting real-world SSIS Data Flow Task errors.
Deploying SSIS Solutions.
Managing, monitoring, and administering SSIS in the enterprise
