Data Vault 2.0 Training: Upcoming Public Classes

After my well-attended talk at #EDW14 in Austin this week (which was a GREAT event), a lot of you asked about where you could find a public class on Data Vault 2.0.

At the time I knew of none, but on my drive back home I was talking to Dan Linstedt (inventor of Data Vault) and he had great news for all of us: Dan will be teaching not one, but two public classes this summer!

Woohoo!

So the first one will be for all our friends in Europe. It will be June 2-4 in Helsinki, Finland. This will be a full 3-day Data Vault 2.0 Bootcamp class where you will get all the details on DV 2.0 modeling and methodology. If you want there is even an option to get the coveted CDVP2 after the class via a private certification exam.

This will be the 1st DV 2.0 class in Europe. So if you are in Europe, or have friends there, head over here for more details: http://danlinstedt.com/news/2014dv2bootcampfinland/

Following the class, Dan will be giving a keynote at the Oracle User Group Finland event on June 5-6 (I will be presenting there too!). To find out about OUGF check in over here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ougf-2014-harmony-tickets-10410222255 (scroll down to see the description and the agenda).

For the folks in USA and North America, Dan’s second public class will be  in Cincinnati, Ohio later in the summer. Details on this are not final yet. I will update this post as they become available.

So there you have it – DV 2.0 classes coming your way.

Cheers!

P.S. If these do not work for you you can always talk to Dan or myself about scheduling a private onsite class for you organization.

Live from the 1st Annual World Wide Data Vault Consortium: Day 1

It has been an amazing and historical day in chilly St Albans, Vermont on this first day of Spring.

In a little hotel on the edge of a little town is a gathering of some of the brightest minds in the world of data vault. They have come from around the USA, Canada, Germany, Australia, The Netherlands, and Norway.

Given the location and distance to get here, these are some dedicated folks intent on being the best they can be at their chosen profession.

Like any great user group meeting there was a keynote, user sessions, and lots of networking.

Look at #WWDVC to get the details of all the action for the day. Below I will provide a few pictures to highlight the day.
