I am honored to be speaking on the PASS (Professional Association for SQL Server) track at this year’s Silicon Valley Code Camp (in Los Altos Hills, CA). Annually, this user event is (currently) the largest Code Camp in the United States. Also, I have been a presenter at some past SQL Saturday events in Mountain View, and I know that passion for data mining runs deep in this technology hub. This post has details on the two presentations I will be giving.
Presentation One (Saturday, October 5): Developing with SQL Server Analysis Services
SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) allows for integrating cubes, tabular model databases, and data mining with your developed applications and services. This talk provides a developer’s framework for understanding SSAS and its core ADOMD .NET and AMO classes. These development options will be demonstrated through application demos. This session is great for developers already working with SQL Server, who want to take their development skills to the next level.
Presentation Two (Sunday, October 6): Secrets of Enterprise Data Mining
If you have a SQL Server license (Standard or higher) then you already have the ability to start data mining. In this new presentation, you will see how to scale up data mining from the free Excel 2013 add-in to production use. Aimed at beginning to intermediate data miners, this presentation will show how mining models move from development to production. We will use SQL Server 2012 tools including SSMS, SSIS, and SSDT. This presentation will include developer tips for integrating SQL Server data mining into software.
I have a general presenter page, which you can access at this link.
Look at the website for the particular schedule, which may change. I am scheduled to speak on each day, so you have the chance to see some of the other sessions too. Please contact me at the event too if you are interested in my more in-depth data mining training options or consulting.
