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!
I blog to remember, too! I sometimes still look back at my old blog for info on the T-SQL PIVOT operator. I’m hoping to update that in my new blog.
