SQL Saturday New York #158

Last Saturday August 4, 2012 we attended SQL Saturday #158 in New York.

We (Tessie, Victoria and Brandon) were there educating folks on SSIS Data Quality for Melissa Data.

For Actuality Business Intelligence and Melissa Data the event planning staff executed a great event and very well organized. Here is a video of Tessie and Victoria(Daughter) in action.

All in all we had a full day of interacting with SQL Saturday New Yorkers and also  giving  presentation Advanced Fuzzy Matching(TSQL, SSIS and MDS).

Last we also brought our grandchildren(Julia, Jack an Jake),  and they were excited to have the chance to begin the processes of becoming future BI Consultants.
