The PASS Summit 2010 Experience

Since I came back to Trinidad I have been focusing on two very important events, Teleios Developer Day and TTSSUG last meeting for the year 2010. After both events were completed I finally got some time to do this long overdue blog post but I decided to leave it as my last post for 2010.

Last month I attended the premier event for SQL Server professionals, the PASS Summit 2010.  Many people have described this Summit as the best Summit ever and while I would agree I guess you can say that my view is a bit biased since this is my first Summit ever. This event also goes down in history as my first IT conference and also my first trip to Seattle. There are too many details and events to write about but I will try to capture as many highlights as possible in this post.

TTSSUG Event Review: Building Reports using SQL Server Reporting Services

The Trinidad and Tobago SQL Server User Group (TTSSUG) held its third and final meeting for 2010 at the Leon Agostini Conference Room, in the Chamber of Commerce Building on December 14th. The meeting had a small turn out of 19 people which we were very grateful for because we know how difficult it is to attend these events at this time of the year.

The presenter for this event, Jason Deyalsingh, is a web architect for Clico. He is responsible for designing and developing internal and external web systems which include data modelling for web application development as well as data transformation and integration between web applications and existing business systems.

Last TTSSUG Meeting for 2010 !

In October we had to postpone our group meeting due to storm watch warnings. Once again I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The good news is that Jason Deyalsingh, our scheduled presenter for the October SSRS session, has kindly adjusted his busy schedule so that he may present at TTSSUG's last meeting for the year 2010. If you are new to SQL Server Reporting Services and want to know how to start building a report or if you are interested in understanding how  Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) and Report Builder 3.0 can be used to benefit you and  your organisation then I suggest you register for this event.
