Announcing Four Weeks of SSIS MicroTraining!

For the next four Tuesdays – 29 Nov, 6 Dec, 13 Dec, and 20 Dec – I will deliver a 30 – 45 minute presentation beginning at 11:00 AM EST on Google+. Please note Google+ limits attendance to the first ten people who join the Hangout and I have no control over who gets in. The topics will be:

  • 29 Nov – “I See a Control Flow. Now What?” (Creating Your First SSIS Package)
  • 6 Dec – The Incremental Load SSIS Design Pattern
  • 13 Dec – Flat File Fu
  • 20 Dec – SSIS Frameworks Magic


29 Nov – “I See a Control Flow. Now What?” (Creating Your First SSIS Package)

In this session, I will walk through the basics of building your very first SSIS package. If you’ve never built an SSIS package but want to know how, this presentation is for you – and it’s tomorrow!

6 Dec – The Incremental Load SSIS Design Pattern

The Incremental Load SSIS design pattern is the classic approach to ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) that loads only new or changed data. this session serves as an abbreviated introduction to the mechanics of ETL using SSIS.

13 Dec – Flat File Fu

20 Dec – SSIS Frameworks Magic

Just in time for Christmas, I break out some magic! This session focuses on the benefits and underlying code of an SSIS Framework.


I hope you will join me for these short MicroTraining sessions!

Hi Stefan,

  Google+ allows *some*metrics users to record their hangouts. I am not one of the users for whom they provide this option. :{\
