If you’ve tried to contact me over the past month or so, then you know that I am living and breathing preparations for the SharePoint Conference 2009.
That’s the big October event this year. So, you might ask – what’s the big November event?
PDC 2009. SharePoint is going to have a bit more of a presence at PDC 2009, which makes sense, seeing as how SharePoint is attracting more and more developers, and is now considered a platform choice for application development.
Business Intelligence is a large piece of the SharePoint platform and a featured workload. (Primarily in the Insights capability in the image below.)
One of the Pre-PDC 2009 workshops is “Developing Microsoft BI Applications – The How and The Why”. This is a full-day workshop which will help developers understand how to build applications on the BI platform of SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server, as well as provide guidance about why leveraging a Business Intelligence-enabled platform such as this provides solutions that are less costly to build, support, and maintain.
