Azure Data Factory Deep Dives in 2019

I’m very happy and honored to announce that I will be presenting three Azure Data Factory Deep Dives in 2019! Join me at SQLSaturday Oslo on August 29th, Data Saturday Holland on October 4th, or dataMinds Connect on October 7th :)

Improved and New Content

At SQLBits 2019, I co-presented the Azure Data Factory Deep Dive with Jason Horner (@jasonhorner). We received great and actionable feedback from our attendees (thank you!) and have been working on improving the session since then. That includes everything from moving sections around for a better flow, to adding newly released features like Wrangling Data Flows.

Since I will be presenting these deep dives alone, I have also made some additional changes. Without an experienced trainer like Jason by my side, I’m not entirely confident running hands-on labs during the day. Instead, I will be focusing on delivering the best and most updated content I can, and let attendees work through labs on their own :)

SQLSaturday Nashville 2018 Precon (Jan 12)

Jason Horner and Cathrine Wilhelmsen presents ETL Design Patterns at SQLSaturday Nashville 2018

Jason had been working on a precon idea for a while that would bring together all his experience using SSIS to deliver ETL projects. I wanted to develop a new precon focusing on Biml and SSIS. Instead of working on two separate precons, we decided to team up and combine our knowledge. We will be delivering this precon for the first time in Nashville, and we’re looking forward to helping attendees by providing guidance on how to solve challenges they might face in their projects.

You can read more about why we wanted to present this precon in our interview on the Nashville BI User Group website.

Check out the full abstract and register for our precon on bit.ly/ETL-Precon-Nash. A regular full-day is only $129, and for only $165 you can also attend one of the half-day precons on Thursday. What a bargain!

SQLSaturday Nashville 2018 Sessions (Jan 13)

Jason and I are also presenting a regular session each. Jason will be presenting his Dimensional Modeling Design Patterns: Beyond the Basics session, and I will be presenting my Biml for Beginners: Speed Up Your SSIS Development session.
