  • Thanks for catching that, Dan!  Just added it.

    -Chris

  • We have had a few roadshows in Maine concerning Microsoft products.  I'm currently working with Microsoft Reporting tools, mainly SSRS and SSAS.  Do your roadshows touch upon these products?  If so, is there a plan for a show in Maine within the next few months?  If not, can some information about these products be included?  Thanks.

  • Hi Joni,

    I don't expect Jim and I will be covering those areas in the next few months (though we are hoping to get on the road again), so community-driven events might help.

    For SQL, there's SQL Saturday (Waltham, MA) on April 2nd (www.sqlsaturday.com/.../eventhome.aspx) should have a wide variety of topics.  Plus there are SQL user groups in Portsmouth, NH (seacoastsql.sqlpass.org) and Waltham, MA (http://www.nesql.org and http://bostonbi.org).

    Of course, I'll post if I hear of anything else, especially in Maine.

    Best,

    Chris
