There’s a brand new business intelligence conference launching next month in Denver, Colorado. The Mile High Tech Con is a three-day event taking place July 24-26, 2014, and is aimed at business intelligence practitioners, data analysts, and information managers/CIOs.
From the event website:
Featuring three days of sessions and events focusing on Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence. Mile High Tech Con will highlight innovative topics that will inspire strategic decision making while offering relationship building and networking. Mile High Tech Con will foster collaboration and discussion so that attendees attain the opportunity to connect with industry experts and fellow developers while examining current and upcoming trends.
Among the topics to be covered at this conference:
- Power BI
- Predictive analytics
- Master data management
- Data quality
- Dimensional modeling
There’s a great lineup of speakers, including Peter Myers, Marc Beacom, Reeves Smith, Bill Fellows, and others. I even managed to convince them to let me speak as well! I’ll be delivering three presentations:
- Real World SSIS (full day seminar)
- Error Handling Patterns in SSIS (two-hour deep dive)
- Introduction to Data Quality Services (one-hour presentation)
This is the inaugural event for the Mile High Tech Con. They have a model similar to that of SQLBits – one day of full-day seminars (Thursday), one day of deep-dive material (Friday), and one community day (Saturday). Best of all, the community day is absolutely free. Registration is currently open, and early bird pricing for Thursday and/or Friday is in effect through next week.
I’m looking forward to attending and presenting at this event. If you’re going to be there, give me a shout and let’s get together for coffee.
