Calling All Trainers – Return of the BI Guy

If you are a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) and are going to be attending either week of Microsoft’s TechEd conference this year, be sure to block off the day of June 7th, the Saturday between the Developer and IT Pro weeks of the conference.

Why block off this date?

It’s because I’m going to be delivering a full-day pre-conference (or post-conference if you’re talking about the developer show) Train the Trainer (TTT) session on the new SQL Server 2008 BI courseware that’s coming soon from Microsoft Learning. That’s right – a complete day filled with SSIS, SSAS, SSIS, SSRS and SSIS! (Not that I’m biased or anything.)

The full details are still being worked out, so stand by for more information, but if you’re an MCT who teaches (or would like to teach) the SQL Server BI courses you will definitely want to attend. We’ll plan on moving beyond what’s in the courseware, focusing on technical depth and real-world examples so you’ll have lots of "value adds" to take back to your classroom after the event.

If you have any questions, just let me know!

    If I can get there, count me in!Rick Hinze

  2. It would be great to see you there, Rick!The great thing (for me, anyway) about this session is that it should work well for attendees of both the Dev and IT Pro conferences, so with a little luck I’ll have a better chance to see more of my developer friends.
