Alabama .Net Code Camp V

Well the Fifth Alabama .Net Code Camp is in the books. I would like to express my humble gratitude to attendees who drove from the ends of the state to attend the event. If you had half as much fun as I did, then it was worth the time and effort. As promised, my presentation "Everything I Ever Wanted to Know About Beginning Business Intelligence with SQL 2005" will be available via ComFrame's website soon. As soon as I know the files are available, I will post an update here so the news can easily get out to RSS readers.

If you are interested in the methodology discussed to 'bootstrap' db connections and store configurations in the database, please read my post on SSIS configurations.

I have added some content to the SQLBI blog, notably a list of web resources I referenced in Saturday's discussion, and a few links to Amazon.com for the book titles I mentioned as well. Finally, I would ask that if you enjoyed the discussion on Saturday, or anything that I am writing here, please make use of the comment links available on my posts to send feedback.

Finally, I am working on a post to go up by the middle of this week, that will walk through the steps (and screen shots) I used to create the examples and demos in Saturday's discussion. Stay tuned here for updates.
