With a little push from some of my colleagues, I have submitted a speaksersession to SQL Saturday in Copenhagen and Edinburgh. To my big surprise both sessions (with the same subject) was chosen as a part of the sessions to be held. I’m very excited and thrilled that these possibilities was given to me. The SQL Saturday in Copenhagen is going to be my virgin session, where I’ll speak about a dynamic approach to partition kubes – bassed on the multidimensional model.
Statistically it happens some time for all of us with a website – and today was my ‘lucky day’ when I got my blog hacked. Got a mail from my hosting-company telling me that my WordPress blog has gotten hacked and was disabled untill I changed all access-codes and made a full-re-install of the binaries. Luckily I’ve got backups of everything – so nothing was lost. Everything is a-ok now – and I hope it does not happen again.
Three days of SQL Server Deep dive at SQL Rally Nordic in Stockholm, SE. The sessions have been held and the impression will last a while – at least for me. Day 1 – The precon ‘Data Warehouse modelling – making the right choises’ by Davide Mauri (site|blog|twitter) and Thomas Kejser (blog|twitter) was a very good walktrough of the aspects, seen from a architectural angle, of building a data warehouse.
I got it! The title of MCSE Business Intelligence. My, for now, last test was 70-467 – Designing Business Intelligence Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server 2012. I can now call myself MSCE. The last two tests: 70-466 – Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 70-467 – Designing Business Intelligence Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 They were not that hard compared to the first 3 to become MSCA.
Ready, Steady, GO!! Today I’ve just passed the last certification on the road to MCSA: SQL Server 2012. GREAT!! What a journey and what a huge pile of books, blog-links and other stuff. The usual training kits from Microsoft Press has been read and been the base for further reading and study. A few days ago Microsoft launched their youtube channel with 3 very good videos regarding the path to MCSA: SQL Server 2012.
