Microsoft Momentum 2009

Microsoft Momentum 2009

In November 26th, Microsoft Cyprus will be hosting “Momentum 2009“, this year’s biggest event in Cyprus.
The event features two tracks; (i) A track for IT Professionals, and (ii) A track for Developers.

On the IT Professionals track, attendees can learn on how to increase productivity using innovations in Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

On the Developers track, attendees can learn about Windows 7 application development, IE 8 tips and tricks for developers, Self-service BI with SQL Server 2008 R2, SharePoint 2010 Developer Platform and the Microsoft Azure Cloud application platform.
Cyprus .NET User Group (CDNUG) is actively participating to this event with three of its members presenting sessions on the Developers track!
To this end, I am happy to be participating by presenting the session with topic “Self-Service Business Intelligence with SQL Server 2008 R2“.

In my session I will talk about SQL Server PowerPivot for Excel 2010 (formerly codenamed “Gemini”) and show how business users can take advantage of this great feature and fulfill their analytical requirements efficiently and iteratively, without the need to be based on a predefined model. During the session, many live demonstrations will take place in order to see PowerPivot in action!

Looking forward to seeing you all at the event!
