I’ve successfully (relative term) navigated my first Team System User Group – Virtual Edition presentation by giving the Overview to Extending the TFS Warehouse simultaneously on Second Life and LiveMeeting. What an interesting way to hold a User Group meeting. It’s kind of like “Geeks Sans Frontières (GSF)” or “Geeks Without Borders”. Thanks to everyone that attended.
I had a great time doing the Overview but found it difficult to not dive down into the guts of the subject so I’m going to flesh out the topic into a full presentation that I’ve committed to giving at the New Hampshire Code Camp on 28-Feb-2009 at Daniel Webster College in Nashua, NH. After I navigate that presentation I’ll tweak it and get a slot in a future TSUG-VE meeting.
Since I am a neophyte to all things BI, I’m going to attend the New England Data Camp v1.0 on 24-Jan-2009to get some more insight into Data Warehouses and Cubes. This is one area that is an art all unto itself and I am woefully ignorant. I know a few people that are eyeballs-deep into this and they are “scary-smart” so I’m looking forward to being the dumbest guy in the room next Saturday.
Here’s the upcomings:

P.S. It looks like “Geeks Without Borders” is an actual group that provides “computers and related equipment to schools, clinics, and nonprofits in developing countries.” I have no affiliation with them, but it seems like a very noble cause. Check them out if you get a chance.
