Last night the Adelaide SQL Server User Group had Adam Cogan visit us from Sydney to talk about Microsoft PerformancePoint 2010. Adam is Chief Architect of SSW, a Microsoft Regional Director and a Microsoft MVP (Visual Studio Team System).
Usually the meetings are at lunchtime, but the group were asked to move to the evening timeslot this month (something about a Windows Phone 7 series talk). The other difference was that we got KFC supplied for supper.
Adam stepped through the features of PerformancePoint 2010 and showed some of the new additions. Probably the most significant is that it ceases to be a separate (expensive) product and now will ship as part of SharePoint Server 2010.
It was an entertaining evening, with a lively discussion between Adam and the audience. At the end of the night I think it’s fair to say we’d all learned a lot (even Adam!)
Adam thought readers might find these resources useful:
How do you combine exercise, family and consulting work?
I’m trying to figure out how I can squeeze in the occasional ride to work, whilst still retaining that degree of separation that is appropriate as a consultant (eg. not using client’s shower facilities!)
My requirements are relatively simple. Somewhere to:
- securely to store my bike
- shower and change
- leave bike clothes/towel to dry
Rob had a good suggestion of checking out local gyms in the Adelaide CBD – maybe they might offer a cheap “change facilities only” membership deal. I read that Melbourne now have a dedicated “Bike Pod” for their cyclists to use. Wouldn’t it be great if Adelaide had something similar!
I’d be interested to hear of other suggestions and/or solutions.
Whilst I do like the idea of a “LobsterPot Solutions” branded bike top and knicks (the red claw would be very eye catching!) I’m not sure that our clients would be happy with me wearing that around the office all day :-)
