I wanted to give a quick update and thank everyone who has responded to my initial posting about bringing SQL Saturday to Wheeling, WV. I have spoken to a couple technology groups and several individuals and everyone is very supportive of this event.
The following are upcoming work items:
- Establish a budget
- Build a support team that will help with organizing the event.
- Find a location and pinpoint a date (tentatively First Quarter 2010.)
I look forward to blogging the status of these work items.
On another note, It looks like I will be presenting the following topic “Building a Data Warehouse with SQL Server” twice in November. I will present first at the Greater Wheeling Chapter of AITP meeting on November 11th. I will also give the same presentation at the Pittsburgh SQL Server User Group Meeting on November 16th.
You will soon see a series of blog post that go over building a data warehouse. You can find the first one here.
