On April 27th next month, SQL Saturday #215 will be here in beautiful, sunny Jacksonville, Florida and none other than yours truly will be speaking, bright and early at 8:30 in the morning!
I’ll be presenting MDXplosion! Intro to MDX. The MDX query language is a powerful tool for extracting data from your cube but can often seem confusing and overwhelming to the untrained eye. But have no fear! It’s easier than you might think. In this session, I’m going to walk you through the basic MDX query syntax, how to navigate a hierarchy, how to create dynamic time calculations, and how to add calculations to your cube.
Also, don’t forget to check out the awesome Pre Con being offered by Brian Knight and Devin Knight on Building a SQL Server 2012 BI Platform. This pre con will cover everything from designing a data warehouse and loading it with SSIS to building an Analysis Services Cube leveraged by Reporting Services and SharePoint BI. You’ll definitely want to be a part of that, so register here for this amazing Pre Con.
