Welcome to my blog!

A little bit about me:  I joined Data Inspirations in June 2008.  I graduated on a Friday in Boston, flew to Vegas on Saturday, and started work on Monday!  Initially all I could do was data entry, but in the ensuing time I’ve learned enough T-SQL, MDX, SSRS, SSAS, SSIS, and Sharepoint to get myself into trouble (and sometimes, luckily, back out of trouble).

As a newcomer to the BI world, I was inundated with information, much of it way over my head.  I spent a lot of time on google trying to find answers to questions that had simple answers – simple if you knew what you were doing!  It seems that often the simple stuff just isn’t deemed important or interesting enough to be written about very often, and I hope to change that.

I’m still learning, but I also would like to share some of what I have already learned with you.  If nothing else, by writing it down hopefully I’ll remember what I’ve learned!
