A place for my thoughts and experiences on SQL Server, Business Intelligence and .NET
I’m yet again pleased to announce that on the next month (19th February 2014) I’ll deliver the Advanced version of our Data Warehouse Workshop with my friend Thomas Kejser. The venue will be Stockholm again (really a lovely city) but this time we’ll be at the
World Trade Center
107 24 Stockholm, Sweden
This is the agenda:
- Logical data models: What are they good for?
- Comparing Inmon and Kimball
- Demystifying meta data: Meta Models and auto generated ETL
- Understanding modern hardware: Co-Located data in SMP and MPP systems
- How to create a balanced system
- Why normalization is bad for data warehouses, and what you can do about it
- Best Practices, Naming Conventions, Lesson Learned
- Choosing between column and row stores
- Keys, master data and mapping layers
- Tracking history in the warehouse
- Handling changing user requirements
- High speed data loading – and reloading
- Unit Testing
I can tell you that this is really something unique, just like the one we already did one year ago and the one we delivered at SQL Rally, the blends and summarize years and years of experience, that, if you’re into BI, you should not miss at all.
See you there!
