The link to my sessions are here, which will lead you to other sessions as well.

This year there is an Analytics and Data Science track which includes the content i will be delivering related to SQL R, Data Science, and Visualization, but also Stacia Varga and David Pless delivering topics on Data Warehouse, SSIS, Reporting Services Mobile, and Power BI. Jam packed track, i am glad to see this.

I will be delivering my first Workshop this year, which means i am probably going to write 20 hours of content and scripts that i will attempt to stuff into 8 hours, all the better for you! The Workshop is Introduction to Statistical Learning and Graphics with SQL Server and R. That title is entirely too long, but here is what you get; The goal is to break down the intimidating barriers to R and find ways for you to use it everyday. Graphics are great troubleshooting tools, and i will have a few scripts and graphics for you to take into your everyday life. Additionally, using the ODBC package, you can connect to any version of SQL Server! This is independent of the Revolution R packages that ship with SQL, those can be used as well, but they are better saved for big data and data science stuff, but don’t fret we will be discussing that at a high level too.
