SQL Saturday in South Florida is quickly approaching in just 2 short weeks. As usual, if you are in the area please come out and support the wonderful people who are giving of their time to help out in the community. Don’t forget that it is a free event, so that has to be a mark in the PROS column to get you to come!! There are going to be a lot of great speakers including several from good ol’ Pragmatic Works. We have several people making the trip down for the day; I’m not sure how many will be able to make the speaker dinner the night before though.
I will be doing three sessions on Saturday: Intro to SSIS, Dynamic SSIS:Expressions, Configurations and Variables as well as co-presenting Pulp SQL with Jorge Segarra (Blog|Twitter). Below you will find the details for my sessions as well as the required information for the event. Please note that a parking pass is required and you can print it from the SQL Saturday site (link below).
11:00 AM – Introduction to SSIS:
In this session Brad will help get you past the learning curve of SSIS. He will cover the basics of the development environment, the control flow and data flow. Brad will show you how to create an end to end package to demonstrate best practices and illustrate design concepts. This is a great session for anyone who is new to SSIS.
1:00 PM – Configuring and Extending SSIS:
In this session Brad will walk you through some of the best practices for configuring SSIS. Each of the configuration types will be covered from XML to registry entries. The use of expressions for configuring your SSIS package will also be covered. Finally he will walk you through some best practices for moving your packages between environments and keeping your configurations up to date.
2:15 PM – Pulp SQL (With Jorge Segarra):
Stories, all have them. In this session Brad and Jorge will tell the tales of how SQL in shops can go horribly wrong, and how to properly go about doing it. This story will be told Tarrantino-style so prepare for some twists, characters and ninja-like tactics* to help you avoid your own SQL mistakes! *fight scenes may or may not break out
