Donald Farmer on SQL Server 2008 R2, SharePoint and PowerPivot
If you're following this blog, then you know that Sunday, May 30th 2010, I went to the SQL & BI Data Platform convention held in Tel Aviv. Specifically, I went to Mr. Donald Farmer's seminar on Data Integration in Large Organizations.
I did live blogging from most of the event, though actually, I didn't manage to blog about the last part of it, because I was preparing for something that was pretty big for me....
I'll start over. When I first heard Mr. Farmer was coming to lecture in Israel, I was like "What? Really? Like, Donald Farmer? Like THE Donald Farmer? Like, Donald Farmer who gave the Demo on PowerPivot? Like, that Donald Farmer? Like, he's really coming??" but they specifically wrote on the advertisements "Donald Farmer, BI Guru from Microsoft" so I was only left with thinking "OMG!!!".
I have to be frank with you - he could have been standing there reading the yellow pages and I still would have gone to see him. Though thankfully enough, that was not the case :)
