Speaking at SQL Saturday Houston

It’s SQL Saturday season again!  I found out this morning that I’ll be speaking at next month’s SQL Saturday event in Houston.  This will be my second consecutive year to speak at this event.

The crew in Houston is great to work with.  Nancy Hidy Wilson, Jonathan Gardner, Malik Al-Amin, and the others event planners did a great job last year, and I’m looking forward to partaking of their hospitality again.  In true Texas fashion, they’re having a big barbecue spread for lunch, and are planning an attendee party for afterward as well.

If you’re in the area, please do come by and catch one or both of my sessions.  I’ll be presenting on the following topics:

Parent/Child Structures in SSIS

SQL Server Integration Services provides the ability to nest packages within one another in a parent/child structure. By creating a multilayer package infrastructure using native elements of SSIS, you can easily encapsulate reusable components of your ETL layer, simplify logging, and make the development process more efficient. In this session, we’ll take a tour through the parent/child facilities within SSIS, including the changes for same in SQL Server 2012.

Top 10 New Features of SSIS in 2012

The release of SQL Server 2012 will bring a number of new and exciting changes to SQL Server Integration Services, making it the most significant release of SSIS since that product replaced DTS in 2005. In this session, we’ll explore the top 10(ish) new features of SSIS in SQL Server 2012, including:

  • The new project deployment model
  • Scripting enhancements
  • Logging

… among others. We’ll also walk through demonstrations of each of these new behaviors.

Also, don’t forget about Kalen Delaney’s precon on Friday – currently it is sold out but they are opening up a wait list to accommodate cancellations.

I hope to see you there!  If you are, please stop by and say hello.
