It’s time again for the Atlanta Code Camp! Still a few hours left to register, you can do so at http://www.atlantacodecamp.com/. Why would you want to come? Well for one to see me, I’ll be giving two presentations.
The first is right after lunch, The Decoder Ring to DW/BI (Data Warehousing / Business Intelligence). In this talk I’ll walk through all the concepts behind designing a data warehouse, including some real world examples to help you understand the differences between Facts, Dimensions, Surrogate Keys, and more.
You may think a BI talk is an odd one for a developer oriented day. More and more though developers are being directed toward the data warehouse to get information for their applications, to combine with the system they are designing. Understanding how data warehouses work will give you a leg up when your company establishes it’s own data warehouse.
The slides for my presentations can be downloaded HERE.
My second session is “Become a PowerShell Pop Star”. In this very fast session we’ll start at ground zero with PowerShell, Microsoft’s scripting language. You’ll see all about cmdlets, variables, functions, programming and more.
