Fish and Chips, Robin Hood, SSIS, and Me

I’m going to Nottingham, England, fabled home of Robin Hood, where I’m going to eat fish and chips and talk about SSIS.  How’s that for tying seemingly unrelated topics together?

I’m happy to report that in addition to my full-day preconference seminar at SQLBits, I’ll also be delivering a regular session entitled Cleaning Up Dirty Data with SSIS on Friday, May 3.  For those unfamiliar, SQLBits is the largest and most well-known SQL Server event outside of the US.  This year’s event will be held in Nottingham, England from May 2-4.  I’ll be speaking all day on Thursday, May 2nd, with the data cleansing session to follow on Friday.

Registration is still open, and until next week you can still get in on the early bird pricing.  If you make it to SQLBits, please do stop by and say hello.

Join me at SQLBits for a day of SSIS

SQLBitsLogoI’m happy to announce that I’ve been selected to deliver a full day of training at the upcoming SQLBits conference in Nottingham, England.  This will be my first time taking part in SQLBits (in fact, it will be my first trip to the U.K.) and I’m very much looking forward to the experience.

I’ll be delivering a full day presentation on Thursday, May 2 entitled Real World SSIS: A Survival Guide.  Our mission for the day will be to examine challenges common to many ETL professionals and demonstrate how to overcome them.  From error handling to logging, and performance tuning to data cleansing, we’ll move beyond the basics to demonstrate real-world approaches to these challenges.  Along with the discussion, we’ve got lots of demos to work through these solutions.

Registration is now open for SQLBits.  You can find out about pricing here (including details about early bird deals), and register here.

I hope to see you there!
