Building a Dynamic OLAP Environment at #SQLbits8

On Saturday I attended the SQLBits conference in sunny Brighton. Great conference, well organized with lots of great speakers presenting high quality content.

For me the highlight was meeting many of the senior guys from the Redmond SQL Server product team including Richard Tkachuk, Mark Souza and Ross Mistry.

Marco Russo presented a great session called Analysis Services Advanced Best Practice. Ok so I have read his book and implement most of the best practices already, but it was great to hear it all from the author himself!

I received very positive feedback on my own session Building a Dynamic OLAP Environment which I had discussed in a previous post. Sometime soon, the slide deck will be made available on the SQLBits web site along with the video of my presentation. However, if you are eager to get your hands on it now, it can be downloaded from here: BuildingDynamicOLAP.zip.

All in all, a great conference! I am looking forward to the next already.
