Presenting on Biml to the SQL Midlands in Birmingham (UK) 11 Sep 2014!

I am honored to present “Using Biml as an SSIS Design Patterns Engine” to SQL Midlands in Birmingham 11 Sep 2014 starting at 18:15! As at SQL Supper the evening before, the other presenter is my esteemed friend, Chris Webb (@TechniTrain). Chris’ session is titled, “Everything you wanted to know about Power BI but were too afraid to ask.” I look forward to learning more about Power BI from one of the masters.

The abstract for my session:

Business Intelligence Markup Language provides a powerful solution for creating and managing SSIS Design Patterns. Andy Leonard, one of the authors of SSIS Design Patterns, demonstrates the benefits of BIML in this session. What are the benefits of Biml? Code re-use, automated code-generation from templates, faster delivery, higher quality.

If you will be in the Birmingham area on the evening of 11 Sep, please stop by and say “hello!” to Chris and me. Chris is the younger, better-looking, smarter guy. I’m the old guy with a long beard who talks funny (I promise yall I am working on my English). Register today!


PS – There are still one or two seats remaining in my SSIS 2012 Design Patterns course 8-11 Sep in London. Please register here to learn more about SSIS!
