SQLSaturday Oregon in Portland on 10/24 which I will be presenting my new "Power BI Is Awesome!" presentation @ 3:30PM. Lots of fun with Power BI for an hour. I really love this tool so it will be very fun and if you are there bring your questions and issues and I'll see what I can do to help everyone out. I'll also be in the Performance Clinic at 4:45PM to answer any SQL Server BI questions that you have.
I'll be enjoying Portland for the weekend, including a trip to Providence Park to cheer on my Colorado Rapids in their final game of the 2015 season on Sunday. I know that their season is already over, but I'm looking forward to seeing them play in another stadium and the Portland Timbers stadium is high on my list!
After the game is over Sunday evening I'll be making the drive up to Seattle for PASS Summit 2015! This will be the first year that I'm presenting a full hour session after doing Lightning Talks the last 2 years in a row (I'm doing another one this year again, for 3 straight years now). If you are going to be in the Seattle area on 10/26-10/30 I can't recommend attending PASS Summit 2015 any more highly. I have lost count of how many PASS Summit's I have been to now, but I think it is my 9th time! My Lightning Talk on "Power BI: From Nothing to Dashboard in 10 Minutes!" will be on Thursday, 10/29 @ 4:45PM and my full session "Date Dimension: Past and Future in One Script" will be on Friday, 10/30 @ 9:30AM. If you still have not registered for PASS Summit 2015, you can still use the discount code LC15WTG2 to get $150 off the registration fee.
Hope to see you all in Portland and/or Seattle in a couple of weeks!
