Speaking at Deutsche SQL Server Konferenz 2015

Speaking at SQLKonferenz

I will be speaking at Deutshce SQL Server Konferenz 2015 (#SQLKonferenz). The conference is from 3-5 February in Darmstadt, near Frankfurt. The first day is a PreCon day with Power Workshops, and the two other days are MainCon days with four parallel tracks: Administration, Business Intelligence, Development and Information Management.

My Biml introduction session called “Generate SSIS Packages Automatically with Biml and BimlScript” is scheduled for Thursday, February 5th. The lineup of speakers this year is amazing! I hope I get to attend as many sessions as possible myself.

Hope to see you there! Please say hi if you see me :)

Speaking at SQLSaturday #341 Porto

I'm speaking at SQLSaturday #341 Porto, Portugal!I’m super excited, proud and honored to announce that I will present my session Generate SSIS packages automatically with Biml and BimlScript at SQLSaturday #341 Porto (Portugal) on October 18th, 2014!

This is the first time I have been selected to speak at a SQLSaturday, and I’m very thankful for the opportunity to share my knowledge about a topic that I believe is a huge leap forward in the world of Business Intelligence development. I was amazed the first time I saw a demonstration of Biml, and I’m so happy that I get to pay it forward and hopefully inspire others to try using Biml at work – I promise, it will save you time.

I can’t wait to meet everyone at #SQLSatPortugal. Please say hi if you see me! :)

SQLHangout #22 – Blabbering about Biml

SQLHangoutWhen Boris (@brshristov) invited me to a #SQLHangout I was really honored and couldn’t say no. It’s such a fun idea and I’ve really enjoyed watching the other #SQLHangouts. It’s great to see people’s personalities shine through in videos instead of only reading their blog posts, and I learn something new.

I suggested to chat about Biml, something I’ve only recently begun learning myself that has already saved me many hours of work. I still have so much to learn, but the fact that it took me about 20 hours to learn something new that has saved me and my coworkers hundreds of hours already… That’s worth sharing. If I can do it, you can do it!

Boris named the video “Biml. An introduction.” I thought a more appropriate name was “Blabbering about Biml” :)


(“Oh hi!”)

I forgot to mention their names, but thank you to Julie Smith (@JulieChix) and André Kamman (@AndreKamman) for inspiring me to learn more Biml in their SQLSaturday sessions in Tampa and Copenhagen! :)
