Over the last few weeks, there has been a lot of questions, tweets, and rumors about the SSAS Maestros program – some notable blogs include Kasper de Jonge’s Do you have what it takes to become SSAS Maestro and Vidas Matelis’ SSAS White Paper List.
We had created the SSAS Maestros program as a way to broadcast the lessons learned from some of SQLCAT’s more complex Analysis Services UDM enterprise customers – such as Yahoo!’s 12TB Analysis Services cube that was announced during the PASS Summit 2010 Day One Keynote with Ted Kummert. The deep technical learnings from names like Akshai Mirchandani, Thomas Kejser, John Sirmon, Denny Lee, and more! have been incorporated together by our good friends from Solid Quality Mentors into a three-day deep dive course in:
We will have more courses planned but this is the initial batch of courses as we will be working out the kinks and improving the course over time. Currently, we’ve made this a 11 module course with labs and exams.
As noted in the above MS events course link as well as Kasper’s blog, the key benefit will be of course the material that you learn. But some of the other great things include:
As you can see, there is a lot of great benefits to this great course!
Due to its complexity and our dive into deep technical learnings, this is not going to be an easy course. Some examples of this include:
We have been drawing inspiration from the SQL Server MCM course – which many of you know is extremely tough!
As this is the first year of the course, we will be very strict and limit the number of applicants into the course. This allows us to work out the kinks in the course as well as figure out logistics around the webcasts and exams / re-examinations. But due to its popularity, we are already rapidly working on planning V2 of the course! So stay tuned!!
