Okay kid, this is where it gets complicated.

The SQL PASS Summit 2011 starts tomorrow and lots of craziness and technical learnings from SQL Karoke to the Birds of Feather luncheon. Just a friendly reminder that on Thursday, October 13th, Thomas Kejser (@thomaskejser) and I – with special guest Kenneth Lieu from Yahoo! – will be presenting the SQLPASS breakout: SQLCAT: Tier-1 BI in the world of Big Data.
If you want to learn more about how to build more complex BI systems utilizing the SQL Server BI stack – including some of the details behind Yahoo!’s 24TB Analysis Services cube (this is correct, I did not do a typo here, I wrote terabytes). For example, the data source behind this massively large but cool cube is no other than a multi-petabyte Hadoop cluster (again, no typos here).
So loop on by and enjoy the session – we’re in room 602-604 – and/or follow the guys wearing both greenshirts and lab coats!
