As readers of this blog know, I've been actively participating in the SQL Server Worldwide Users Group (SSWUG) virtual conferences on SQL Server. These conferences are proving to be a very nice way for people who wouldn't normally attend technical conferences to be able to get some pretty good education. SSWUG is extending their conferences for the fall, and will be holding a Business Intelligence conference in September (September 24-26). My friend and colleague Matthew Roche will be chairing the BI conference for SSWUG, and has assembled a pretty impressive list of speakers (How I got on this list I'll never know) for this event.
Matthew has also posted some interesting information about the conference here: http://bi-polar23.blogspot.com/2008/07/check-out-this-lineup.html
