I’m in Miami this week, and I’m wrapping up my last day of a 5 day class on the Microsoft BI Stack, including PowerPivot, Power View, and PerformancePoint. This was a bit scary as I have not had a lot of actual business experience with these software packages, but I got a week ahead of the class to prepare. I work with some of the most talented BI folks and I used some recordings of previous classes to prepare. But what made this class a huge success for me was the great students I had! I was fortunate to get a group that actually wanted to learn what i was teaching, and they were very enthusiastic and encouraging.
