Can you believe it, there is only one user group meeting left in 2012 before we start again. Doesn't time fly! Anyway, the December user group meeting is back to the normal day (first Wednesday of the month) at the normal venue (St Andrews Church).
So what have we got planned for you? Well this month we are very lucky to have one of our favourite speakers back, Jen Stirrup (@Jenstirrup, blog) of Copper Blue Consulting (Website) will be paying us a visit. She will be speaking about how we can use PowerShell to power Business Intelligence development, driven by the fact that we need to work smarter rather than harder to meet the thirst for data in business today. This looks like a great session that all data professionals can learn from, not just those within the BI sphere but anyone who works with data.
Jen is best known for her work in Business Intelligence and Data Visualisation. Jen is a SQL Server MVP who is the current holder of the SQL Passion Award, presented by PASS at Summit 2012, for her work in helping the European SQL Server Community. This year, Jen has presented at TechEd North America, SQLPass and SQLBits, along with SQLSaturday events throughout Europe. Jen runs Copper Blue Consulting with Allan Mitchell, delivering business-critical solutions that add business value in addition to provisioning technical integrity. You can follow them on Twitter on @ThinkCopperBlue.
After this we will be having a little bit of a social evening where you can chat with the other attendees, both Steph and I are very keen to get your feedback on how the user group is going. Also we would like to know if there is anything that you want to see or for us to arrange in the coming year.
If you want to register for this event, then please head on over to our eventbrite event here and register with us for free as normal.
All the best & hope to see you there.
John & Steph
