SQL Saturday #171 Pittsburgh preparations continue, and the schedule has been posted for your review. If you’re anywhere in the area on October 6th, please join us at La Roche College for some great free SQL training.
Personally, I’ve had to curtail my activities with the planning committee due to starting a class, but everyone else is going strong, and it is all shaping up well. At work I’ve been digging into Data Quality Services and Master Data Services lately, so I’m particularly looking forward to Rushabh Mehta’s “Intro to DQS” and Carlton Ramsey’s “Intro to MDS” sessions. I’m also trying to get up to speed on PowerPivot and PowerView, so Dan Clark’s “Building your First Tabular Model” will be of interest to me as well. There is a whole SQL 2012 track at the event, and we have two Administration tracks as well. Should be great — please join us if you can!

P.S. My last post about ComputeReach? Turns out that the girlfriend is going along with those computers to Ghana, to do installs and training. The opportunity came on suddenly, and it’s all happening very quickly. Had to laugh when she showed up at my house the other day with half a dozen band-aids crisscrossed on each arm after getting all the required inoculations all at once! To say she’s excited about the trip would be an understatement…
