[ the cutting edge ]

G'Day Developers!

This month, I have no wisdom to share with you as I am cycling to Wagga Wagga, which for those who do not know, is about 500km away from Sydney. I have been told it is too dangerous, but the dangers of inactivity are far greater. I’ll see you there for Greg Low’s SQL Code Camp, hopefully in one piece.

If you miss our rules, go to the SSW Rules page.

Cheers until next time, Adam
SSW Chief Architect and Microsoft Regional Director, Australia

Hear Adam talk about Microsoft Office PerformancePoint 2007

After having a successful event last year, SQL Code Camp Down Under is dishing out seconds. It is a free event being held over two days 13th and 14th of October. A number of great SQL Server speakers have already indicated they'll be along and Kevin Kline has told them he'll be in Australia as a special guest. One of these speakers will be our own Adam Cogan presenting Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 on Saturday at 13:15 – 14:15.

Taking Your Application Design to the Next Level With Data Mining

Data mining as a technology is designed to analyze large volumes of data looking for patterns that accurately predict behaviour. These patterns can then be used to derive knowledge about data, and in turn this knowledge can be used to enhance application designs and the user experience.

In this presentation, Peter Myers will present an overview of SQL Server 2005 Data Mining and will demonstrate how to develop data mining models that can be embedded into your applications. Demonstrations will be based on SQL Server 2005 Data Mining, using .NET Windows and web development.

This presentation is a must for any developer looking to embed “Artificial Intelligence” into their solution design to take their applications to the next level. It is guaranteed to thrill you with potential, and excite you with the ease in which it can be accomplished. Note that there is no requirement that attendees have any data mining background.

Peter Myers is a freelance BI practitioner, trainer and presenter. He has 11 years' experience working in OLTP database design and development, DBA support and Data Warehousing/Business Intelligence with SQL Server. Peter has a broad business background supported by a bachelor degree in applied economics, and he extends this with MCITP, MCSD, MCDBA, MCSE and MCT certifications. Currently he provides mentoring and technical training locally and internationally, and focuses on delivering training for the SQL Server database engine, Integration Services (DTS), Analysis Services, Reporting Services, ASP.NET and .NET programming (C# and VB.NET).
