SQL Bits The 7 Wonders of SQL Server conference registration is now open.
This is the biggest – and in my opinion the best – SQL Server conference in Europe. It runs from Thursday September 30th with a training day through the premium Friday conference to the free Community day on Saturday October 2nd. Register at http://www.sqlbits.com/ and I look forward to seeing you in York.
This will be my 4th SQL Bits and hopefully my first presenting. I have submitted a session on data visualisation best practice ‘Lies, Damn Lies and Pie Charts’ where I will use a selection of good and bad visualisations to talk through why some things work while others don’t. As with any meaningful discussion on this topic I will be referencing the work of Stephen Few (http://www.perceptualedge.com/) and Edward Tufte (http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/).
Once you have registered you will have an opportunity to vote for the sessions that you would like to see presented – this does not obligate you to attending your selections, you can decide that on the day. So please vote for Lies, Damn Lies and Pie Charts plus any other 9 sessions you like the sound of at http://www.sqlbits.com/information/PublicSessions.aspx once you have registered.
