DevConnections Sept 14-17th 2015 – Las Vegas

DevConnections is a new conference for me and I am excited about the opportunity to present 2 different sessions. The conference is at ARIA Resort in Las Vegas, NV. There are many great speakers at this event including Grant Fritchey, Itzik Ben-Gan, Denny Cherry and many more. The conference includes more than one technology.

Here is a Promo Code LSPK49 for a savings of $600 off the standard price of $2,250 for the 5-day all-access package!


The cost of the event includes access to all sessions from all tracks. I would really like to spend some time in the Cloud & Data Center as well as Enterprise Collaboration. The first day (Monday) is for full day workshops in all tracks.


I will be speaking on Tuesday at 11AM and Wednesday at 1:15PM. The sessions are Attributes and Hierarchies in SSAS 2014 and Excel 2013 Tips and Ticks for Displaying a Multidimensional Cube. These are topics that I really have a passion to work on. Analysis Services is a great tool for aggregating data and being able to get Dimension columns into Hierarchies and Members. With Excel, you can directly report against a cube and get lots of insights.


There is also a SQLSaturday on the weekend before this conference, so if you are in Las Vegas, you will probably get to see some if these same speakers on Saturday (for free).
