SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Patterns

A book, a pre-conference training session, and a webinar - oh my!

The Book

Over the past two years, I have been lucky enough to work with some of the great SSIS-gurus, Andy Leonard, Matt Masson, Tim Mitchell, and Michelle Ufford, on a book project that has finally been realized.  I am pleased to announce the publication of SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Patterns (amazon | apress).  Thank you to everyone who helped with the writing, editing, and reviewing of the book.

The Pre-conference Training Session
The PASS Summit has invited the ENTIRE author team to give a pre-conference training session on Monday, November 5, 2012.  This training session gives you the chance to ask anything you want from the author team and take home advanced knowledge that can immediately be implemented.  SSIS Design Patterns description:
In this full-day session, the "SSIS Design Patterns" (Apress, 2012) author team – Matt Masson, Tim Mitchell, Jessica M. Moss, Michelle Ufford, and Andy Leonard – will describe and demonstrate patterns for package execution, package logging, loading flat file and XML sources, loading the cloud, dynamic package generation, SSIS Frameworks, data warehouse ETL, and data flow performance.

The Webinar
As a preview of our pre-conference session, Michelle and I will be discussing a few design patterns during the 24 Hours of PASS webinar schedule for September 20, 2012 at 10:00PM EST.  I've had a blast working with Michelle, and I believe this session will give you something to use today, as well as provide an idea of what you can learn in a whole day session.  Tune into SSIS Design Patterns for Fun and Profit:
As a preview of the PASS Summit 2012 pre-conference session "SSIS Design Patterns" by Andy Leonard, Matt Masson, Tim Mitchell, Michelle Ufford, and Jessica Moss, Michelle and Jessica will present design patterns to assist in the day-to-day day activities of SSIS 2012 development. Learn how best to set up a template package, to utilize the framework for your SSIS development, to review the metadata of executions, and more. This online session will provide you information you can use today as well as provide a preview of the types of things you can learn in this fall's pre-conference session.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on our book, seeing you at the training session, or answering your questions on the webinar.  Happy ETL-ing!

Hi Christi,

I would recommend posting this question to the Career forum at SQLServerCentral: You have a better chance or receiving more answers there.
