SQL Server Days 2015 is over and it was a blast. Met a lot of people from the #sqlfamily, too many to mention, and I saw some interesting sessions. My favorites were David’s session about loading data faster and Catherine’s session about BIML (yes, both are related to SSIS). I gave a session on the new BI features in SQL Server 2016 and it went great: demos didn’t crash and I stayed within the time frame. The room was almost full and the audience seemed to enjoy itself.
You can find the slidedeck on Docs.com:
Most of the code for the demos can be found in my articles on MSSQLTips.com. There’s a slide at the end with resource material that contains the links to the relevant articles.
