I wanted to call out the BI evening on 10th June because they’ve given me a slot to talk about SQL Server 2008 r2 and specifically the BI features you can expect.   There’s also sessions on Data Modeling and information architecture from Alex Pratt & Andrew de Rozairo (Sybase) and one on Attribute relationships in MDX studio by Ashwani Roy (IMGroup). 

The evening starts at 5:30 (registration) and finishes at 9pm at the Microsoft Campus (Building 3) in Reading. Click here to register.
