A place for my thoughts and experiences the Microsoft Data Platform

PASS Summit Preconference and Sessions

See you there!!!!!

Hi Davide, is it possible to get the slides from your pre-conference session, Building the Agile DW with SQL Server 2012"? In particular, I would like the pages 9-15 covering the Agile approach.
