11 On-Demand Sessions Start on June 19, 2012 and Ends July 18, 2012
In a partnership agreement with Pragmatic Works, SSWUG.ORG’s virtual class is designed to help you understand all aspects of SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (SSRS), the reporting tool of choice for SQL Server developers.
Sherri McDonald, course instructor and support manager for Pragmatic Works, will use a variety of lab exercises and small projects to ensure familiarity in how the design and execution environments work and to help build real-world applications using this SQL Server subsystem. By the end of the course, you will have a firm understanding of all the key concepts of Reporting Services, including basic reporting, parameters, deploying and scheduling.
The target audience of this class is developers, architects or IT professionals who have basic SQL skills already, such as being able to run a query inside of SQL Server 2008. This class assumes that you have no previous knowledge of SSRS. In some of the coding modules, it is useful to have some basic Visual Basic experience.
Throughout the 30-day course, you will learn how to:
- Develop reports with graphical representation of your data
- Make your reports dynamic
- Understand the concepts of dashboard design for your reports
- Report off your Cubes, deploy and manage your reports and set-up subscriptions
