I would like to
thank everyone who took the time to attend our 'Breakfast with Experts' event
earlier this week.
During the first
part of the event – Mobile Reporting, attendees were able to learn about the
new and improved features of Reporting Services 2016 and how it can be used
with Power BI for either cloud or on-premises environments. I also conducted a
live demo showcasing Microsoft SQL Server Mobile Report Publisher and how it
can be used to build sample reports with two data sets for a tablet and mobile
phone. Attendees were then able to view sample reports via my Windows Phone
Power BI application to get a clear idea of the end-user mobile experience.
Paul asked me to be
the technical editor for this book based on our previous collaboration for the 2012 version. I know that he took a lot of time and effort to ensure that this
book delivered useful and relevant information for anyone looking to upgrade or
leverage Reporting Services 2016 in their production environment.
(22) chapters while dealing with changes from SQL Server 2016 RC3 to RTM was
definitely a challenge but it was also a great learning experience. I am greatly appreciative of this opportunity
that Paul and Wrox has given me and I look forward to future collaborations
SoftwareOne will be
hosting a breakfast event next Tuesday 28th March where I will be presenting on
Mobile Reporting. During this session, I will demonstrate how to create and
publish Reporting Services Mobile Reports using the Mobile Report Publisher, PowerBI
and SQL Server 2016. For additional details and registration info, please

Thank you to everyone who attended my session yesterday! I appreciate that you chose my session and I also appreciate the honest
feedback that I have seen in the reviews thus far. As promised, you can find
the deck as well as the scripts used for my screen shots here - Ignite 2016 Presentation.
For those that read
my blog, I would like to apologize for not blogging much this year. My main focus has
been getting familiar with my new job and most of my free time that I spend
with the community has been focused on presenting in person, rebuilding TTSSUG
and a project with Paul Turley (more on this soon).
