The SQL Saturday last weekend was a great meeting! As usual, there was a lot of great information to absorb. Paul Turley’s presentations on Tablular Models and Visualization Choices were particularly good. I hadn’t gone to any of the non-technical presentations in the past, but I went to the ’10 Things I Hate About Interviewing With You’ session and found it to be worthwhile.
My ‘Designing for Analysis’ presentation went great. It was standing room only and the audience was actively engaged the whole time. This was the second time I’ve presented on this topic. Thanks to feedback from the first presentation, I made some changes that made a huge difference this time. Feedback from this session leads me to believe that I should split this presentation into a beginner version and a deeper dive.
All in all, though, it was a wonderful weekend!
