    I am happy to be a sponsor (via MarkTab Inc) and presenter at SQL Saturday 226 South Florida.  I have been to this event in the past, and many of my presenter friends will also be at this excellent event.  Also, I will giving away some great prizes:  five passes (value US$1495) for data mining training to be held on September 10-12, 2013 (winners must be present at the end of the event to win).  I also will be giving three separate one-hour presentations, two on data mining, and one for professional development.  This blog post has the details, and links to the presentations.

    SQL Saturday 226 South Florida

    I have three separate presentations for this SQL Saturday.

    Abstract One

    Applied Enterprise Semantic Mining (intermediate)

    Text mining is projected to dominate data mining, and the reasons are evident: we have more text available than numeric data. Microsoft introduced a new technology to SQL Server 2012 called Semantic Search. This session’s detailed description and demos give you important information for the enterprise implementation of Tag Index and Document Similarity Index. The demos include a web-based Silverlight application, and content documents from Wikipedia. We’ll also look at strategy tips for how to best leverage the new semantic technology with existing Microsoft data mining.

    Abstract Two

    Data Mining Innovation with SQL Server 2012 (advanced to master)

    This presentation includes a complex business analytics solution using elements across the Microsoft Business Intelligence technology. This talk will not have all the steps spelled out. Therefore you should prepare — for example, by looking at the SQL Server 2012 Developer Kit — since attendees will be expected to have working knowledge of SQL Server relational database, SSIS, SSAS, SSRS, SSMS and SSDT. Key elements of this solution will highlight features new to SQL Server 2012. At the end of the demonstration, you will be expected to participate in groups to promote one idea which builds on the demo, and everyone will be voting for their favorite groups. Come ready to create and celebrate your peers.

    Abstract Three

    Social Marketing 2013 for Microsoft Professionals (beginner to intermediate)

    Are you looking to create more stability in your professional future in uncertain economic times? Developing a social media platform is a challenge for highend professionals and consultants. The presenter has established a blog (http://marktab.net), cofounded an online journal, become a paid video presenter, secured a spot at Microsoft TechEd, and earned credit toward his first Microsoft MVP. This presentation introduces the basic elements for 2013 of a successful web strategy. The presenter shares his own statistics and first-hand experiences with website development, WordPress blog hosting, leveraging social media services (including Twitter, Linked in, YouTube and Facebook), and working with Microsoft.


    MarkTab Inc. (dba MarkTab Consulting) is providing prizes at the bronze sponsorship level.  You are free to enter a drawing for one of five data mining training passes (value US$1495) to be delivered online from September 10-12, 2013.  The prizes have no redeemable cash value, but may be transferred to another person.  I additionally will be offering a discount coupon code for people coming to the conference (the code is on the MarkTab Inc flyer in your goodie bag).  I have trained dozens of people (both in public and private settings) on Microsoft SQL Server technology.  The training will focus on SQL Server 2012 and Microsoft Office 2013.  Winners will be announced at the end of the day, and you must be present to win.
