Speaking of SQL Master Data Services

Yeah! I’m so glad that SB asked me because after SharePoint Saturday Hartford (of course you were there) I was thinking to myself – I need to get up and talk to people more about Master Data Services.

Anyway, I enjoy this group. They meet at the Microsoft office in Farmington, CT every 2nd Tuesday of the month. Nice group of people and I have seen several excellent presentations given there. My talk is on March 8, 2011.

I’m not sure when the event starts, but you can find out here:

I’ll talk about what Master Data Management is, why companies care, and the of course SQL Server 2008 R2 Master Data Services. We’ll talk architecture, modeling, rules, getting data in, getting data out, and even demo some SharePoint code!

Hope you can make it.


SharePoint Saturday Slides

This past Saturday I presented “SharePoint and Azure – Every Cloud has a Silver(light) Lining”. The focus of the presentation was to walk through various integration scenarios between SharePoint On Premise and SharePoint Online as well as WCF services hosted on Premise and delivered via Azure in the cloud.

Here are the slides that I presented: SharePoint Saturday Slides

I haven’t had a chance to pull together my code samples from the 5 different projects and solutions I presented. Once I do that I’ll put another post up here with that, so be on the lookout.
