Speaking at SQLSaturday Sacramento 2016

Speaking at SQLSaturday Sacramento 2016On July 23rd I will be speaking at SQLSaturday Sacramento 2016! This will be my first time visiting California, so I’ve planned a day of sightseeing in San Francisco before heading up to Sacramento. There’s a big chance I’ll melt in the Californian summer heat and never come back, haha! But hopefully I’ll be able to finish my sessions first :D

This will be the first time I present two sessions at one SQLSaturday. My first session is Level Up Your Biml: Best Practices and Coding Techniques. Depending on your previous experience with Biml and C#, this is an intermediate or advanced session. I’ll cover things like code management, LINQ and how to create your own C# classes and methods.

If you’re new to Biml, you can get an introduction to Biml from Bill Fellows (@billinkc) who will be presenting his
What is Biml and why are SSIS developers excited about it?
session before mine. I definitely recommend attending, Bill is a great speaker :)

My second session is Tools and Tips: From Accidental to Efficient Data Warehouse Developer. This is a fun, fast-paced session with a whole bunch of tips and tricks. I don’t really go into details on anything, but I hope that new developers can pick up a thing or two. And here’s a little secret for you: I will be giving away a free software license to one lucky attendee in this session! And maybe a book or two. And definitely some Norwegian chocolate if you want to try it.

Outside of my own sessions I really want to attend Who needs SSAS when you have SQL? and finally see Meagan Longoria (@mmarie) present live.

Hope to see you at SQLSaturday Sacramento this weekend, and please come and say hi if you see me! :)
