We are proud to announce the first wave of SSAS Maestros v1.0. After three 3-day sessions in Redmond, London, and Hong Kong in Feb/Mar 2011 with hundreds of applications and eighty one attendees, we now have the first wave of SSAS Maestros who completed the course and passed a comprehensive lab, exam, and case study. Once we resolve the logistics, we will be publishing some of these case studies on sqlcat.com as well!
Some quick logistics for the future SSAS Maestro announcements:
A heartfelt congratulations to the first wave of SSAS Maestros from the SSAS Maestros team!
When will the next training session start? I also wish to get into the program.
Congratulations to all! I study the books, blogs, and tweets from you all and I hope to one day be on a list like this with you. Well done!
We are still working on when the next SSAS Maestro sessions will be starting up. Stay tuned!
Congratulations to the first wave of SSAS Maestros.
I will prepare to stay ready to next wave.
Am I reading it correctly that people who did the program in June will find out how they went next year??? Are they ok with that?
Also, is there any chance of having some of the case studies from June/July published? It would seem a waste to have the guys do them and to then hold them to the point where a new version of the product is out anyway.
Congratulations to all! Chris Webb really desrve it.
@Terry Donovan - you are correct that the folks in June will not find out until next year. I'll have to let the attendees answer about if they re okay with it. But the lengthy review process to ensure a high bar of quality requires us to take this much time to review the case studies and exams.
As for the case studies - yes, we in the process of determining what it takes to publish them.
Any Maestro's experience what appears to be a bug in SSAS 2008R2 related to Cube Actions? I noticed that if I create a Drillthrough Action then deploy it to the server...it works fine. But if I come back the action and modify the Field List, then re-deploy, it either doesn't work at all, or doesn't return any data.
