Thanks to the Raleigh Triangle SQL User Group

This is overdue (the aforementioned blog problems have delayed a lot of posts), but I wanted to say thanks to the Raleigh, NC TriPASS User Group for letting me present on August 17th, 2010. I talked about “Processing Flat Files with SSIS” and had a great audience, with lots of questions and participation. It was a great experience, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Presenting at SQLSaturday #48 in Columbia, SC on Oct. 2nd

I’m excited to be presenting at the upcoming SQLSaturday #48 in Columbia, SC on October 2, 2010. I get to give two presentations at this one:

  1. Creating Custom Components for SSIS – if you are interested in building your own custom components for SSIS, this is a good session to attend
  2. Processing Flat Files with SSIS – feeling confused and angry about the way SSIS handles your flat files? Join this group therapy session where you can learn some tips for making SSIS behave.

If you read the blog, please introduce yourself. I’ll be around all day, and I’m always happy to chat.

Presenting at SQLSaturday #46 in Raleigh September 18th, 2010

I’m very happy to be presenting at the upcoming SQLSaturday #46 in Raleigh, NC on September 18th, 2010. I’ll be presenting two sessions, one on Processing Flat Files with SSIS, and the other on Patterns for SSIS Configuration and Deployment.

I’d also like to mention that Varigence is one of the sponsors of this event, along with other a number of other impressive companies. It’s great that so many companies are willing to sponsor these local community events, and I know from helping with the SQLSaturday here in Charlotte that having willing sponsors makes setting up the event much easier. If you’d like to see a demo of Vivid, Mist, or Hadron, feel free to drop by our table at some point during the day.

If you are a reader of this blog, please introduce yourself. I’ll be around all day.
