New Speaking Opportunities This Summer

I’ve enjoyed speaking at several SQL Saturdays and some local user group meetings over the past couple of years. This summer I’ve been invited to speak at some new venues.

First up is a webinar through the PASS Business Analytics Virtual Chapter.  The PASS BA VC is a great place to find free online training each month. I’ll be talking about The Accidental Report Designer: Data Visualization Best Practices in SSRS on Thursday, June 19th at 11AM CDT. If you are interested, please register here.  This is my first webinar, so I am interested and excited to try out this format. Here is the abstract for my webinar:

Whether you are a DBA, a developer, or an analyst, there is a good chance that you will have to create reports for coworkers, company executives, or clients. As with any UI design, careful consideration should be given to your data visualization design to ensure you are effectively communicating the intended message and providing a good user experience. While the principles are applicable across reporting platforms and tools, this session will contain demos and examples implemented in Reporting Services using SQL Server Data Tools. Learn how to make information (not just data) the focus of your report and provide your audience with something better than just shiny!
Session Level: Intermediate

I will be speaking at Mile High Tech Con in Denver, Colorado on July 25th and 26th . It features 3 days of content about data warehousing and business intelligence.  This is my first non-PASS event, and I’m looking forward to visiting Denver once again. The cost of the conference is fairly reasonable, so you might consider it if you are looking for a good BI conference to attend.  The pre-cons cost extra, but the main conference on Friday and Saturday is $475.  You can use my discount code for $40 off of that price: 14SK_MeaganLongoria

I hope you will join me at both of these great events.
