SoCal Code Camp Sessions Posted…

Ok, I know I am a little late but that is only because I had high hopes of putting together some other sessions.  Unfortunately my schedule is keeping from from doing all the sessions I would like, but I did post my session abstracts for the upcoming SoCal Code Camp in here San Diego on June 27th and June 28th.

Here they are:

IT Pro Panel: Q&A for Developers
Join Steve Evans, Denny Cherry, and I as well as others for an open panel on IT issues that affect developers!  Bring your questions and answers!

SQL Server Express Edition for the Hobbyist, Student & Professional
SQL Server Express is a free edition of the SQL Server Database Engine and related tools. This session will introduce you to the Express Edition, it’s capabilities, it’s limitations, and licensing concerns. We will also look at third party tools that can be downloaded and used with SQL Server Express to replace functionality that is missing

SQL Server Integration Services Control Flows
In this session we will cover the specifics of SQL Server Integration Services Control Flow. Control flow is where SSIS developers manage the sequencing of tasks within an SSIS package. Control Flow concepts covered in this session include tasks, precedence constraints, containers, variables and more. Understanding the core concepts of control flow is the foundation of creating effective SSIS Packages.

SQL Server Integration Services Data Flows
In this session we will focus on a specific SSIS task: The “Data Flow” task. The data flow is the most commonly used tool to move data in an SSIS package. It is in the data flow that you specify the data sources, transformations, and destinations for your data movement process. Data Flow concepts covered in this session include Connection Managers, Data Sources, Data Destinations, Transformations, Error Output, and more.

If you haven’t had a chance to see my SSIS Control Flow and Data Flow sessions before, they are like a mini SSIS class.  They are a great place to start if you haven’t worked with SSIS before!  They are also a great place to figure out problems you may have had if you are already using them!

There are a ton of other sessions, and more sessions on SQL Server than I think I have ever seen at a non-sql specific code camp!  Book the dates now, and I hop to see you there!
