My Online MDX Training Course Is Now Live!

with 2 comments

Recently I spent a few days with Rafal Lukawiecki recording videos of my MDX training course for Project Botticelli. I’m now pleased to announce that the first two videos (to add to the free video I recorded last year) from the course are now live with more to follow soon. You can find the main course page here; the two videos available as of today are:

The MDX SELECT Statement

This video covers writing simple MDX queries and looks at the SELECT clause, the FROM clause and the WHERE clause. The cool thing is that it’s free to view – although you will need to register on the site first.

MDX Calculated Members

This video covers the basics of creating calculated members in MDX in the WITH clause and using the CREATE MEMBER statement. It’s available to subscribers only.

Apart from my course there’s a lot of other great Microsoft BI video training available via Project Botticelli, including several DAX videos by my old friends Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari. Subscriptions to the site are very reasonably priced, but if you register before the end of December 2013 you can get a 20% discount by using the following promotion code:

TECHNITRAIN20HOLS2013

Of course, if you prefer your training in a classroom, you can always attend one of my Technitrain courses in London next year.

Free MDX Training Video Now Live

with 4 comments

I’m sure a lot of you have seen Rafal Lukawiecki speak at BI events around the world; well, a few months ago he launched a new online training business at http://projectbotticelli.com/ and I’m honoured to announce that the first video I’ve recorded for him is now live. It’s a 30 minute session on some of the basic theory of MDX (the concepts of unique names, tuples and sets), it’s free to view and it’s available here:
http://projectbotticelli.com/knowledge/mdx-basic-concepts-unique-names-tuples-sets-video-tutorial?pk_campaign=cw2012cwb

I’ll be recording some more MDX videos with him next year, and I’ll post again when they’re done. There are also many other great videos from Rafal, Marco and Alberto on DAX, SSAS 2012 Tabular, PowerPivot, Data Mining and other MS BI topics available which you can find here:
http://projectbotticelli.com/video?tid=All&pk_campaign=cw2012cwb

Hope you enjoy them! And if you’re looking for some classroom-based MDX training, the course I’m teaching in London in December still has some spaces left:
