Philly Code Camp 2011.1: BI Visualizations

Many thanks to all who came out on a beautiful spring Saturday here in Philly for the 1st of 2 Code Camps in 2011!

First – many special thanks to Bill Wolff and the gang @ the Philly.NET user group. What a tremendous job these guys do and the work that they put into the UG and Code Camp is amazing.

Second – Here is the link to my presentation on Microsoft BI data visualizations. There are links embedded in the slides that also point you to some of the demos that I showed around the Data Connector for GIS visualizations, PivotViewer for sorting through large data sets and Silverlight binding.

Here are a few more links to help with the demos and code that we reviewed yesterday:

  1. Using ADOMD to connect to MDX data sources like SSAS
  2. Here is the Silverlight 1.0 pie control that I demo’d which you will want to upgrade for Silverlight 4.0 and modify for your own needs in Expression Blend
  3. The 3rd party vendors to look @ for the Silverlight controls to include in your solution that I mentioned are Telerik, Infragistics, ComponentOne, Neudesic and Visifire
  4. My blog for using cloud and mobile BI is part of a series that I am running in SQL Magazine’s BI Blog
