This fall is going to be my most busy so far, in terms of speaking. I have been accepted for SqlSaturday in Oslo where I am going to be talking about BI DevOps, which I am really stoked about. Supposedly our Northern neighbors are to host one h… of a SqlSaturday. I hosted a session about this at the recent SqlNexus event, and it seems quite popular. This not only by attendance, but also the fact that Mark Broadbent (b|l|t) and I have agreed that I do a mini-con on the same topic at SqlSaturday Cambridge. See here for Part 1 and here for Part 2.

I am thrilled to go back to Cambridge again this year. It seems I am there odd years only, 2013, 2015 and now 2017. This year, besides the mini-con, I am on for a session on Pro Techniques for the SSASMD Developer. A session I have delivered on several occasions, latest at SqlSaturday in Prague.
But, before these three events, I am to give a session at the Power BI World Tour, which is held in Copenhagen. More precisely at Microsoft HQ in Kgs. Lyngby, just north of Copenhagen. Here I will be demonstrating how to connect a Raspberry Pi running Windows 10 IoT Core to Azure and read of the device live in Power BI.
Topping off the quarter, I will be in Seattle, where I am doing not only one, but two sessions; on session on BI DevOps (again) and one on <drum roll please> how to connect a Raspberry Pi with Azure Stream Analytics and Power BI. Really, REALLY, excited to be selected to speak at the PASS Summit. I have only done a Lightning Talk, back in 2015 , and I am both humbled and scared to have two(!) general session slots at the greatest data platform event in the world. I have however had a few test runs before the event, so that should hopefully have settled the worst of the nerves.
This year I am proud to state, that I am 2/2 on submissions to the Summit.
I hope to be going back to the U.S. in December, to be able to speak in Washington at the SqlSaturday event there. If I succeed in getting accepted there, I have a cunning plan on going home via Pittsburgh to catch the Ravens taking a beating. Fingers X’ed.
