We have several engineers attending and presenting at SQL Saturday BI Edition #237 this Saturday 10/19/2013 in Matthews, NC (Just down the road from Charlotte for those folks attending the PASS Summit).
Rick Hallihan and Bill Carroll will be presenting an overview of the Windows Azure HDInsight service, and Dan Shaver and Gregory Suarez will be giving an intro to Hadoop Tools for the SQL DBA.
Attendance is free but space may be limited so please register at the SQL Saturday Website if you plan to attend. Lunch is available for $10.
I'll be there!!!! Thanks for the notice.
