Further to my rather sad post yesterday about SQLSaturday Edinburgh, it was clear to me that the community needs a community events calendar that is open and available to everyone to use. There is a need to facilitate community communication about events in the Microsoft Data Platform community in Europe. This Calendar is a way of facilitating and organising the busy Microsoft Data Platform events calendar around Europe.
So, the obvious thing was for me to do a model in PowerBI, so that folks can go and play with it, work out dates and locations for their events, and so on.
I have already put a Google Calendar below. However, it isn’t very interactive, so that’s when my PowerBI workbook came into play. You can download the PowerBI workbook here. When the Power BI allows people to upload workbooks like Tableau Gallery does (#SubtleHint) then I will put it up there.
Note: This Calendar does not include user groups. This refers to day events, weekend events only. I am maintaining it myself, and please email me at email@example.com if your event is missing or incorrect.
Note that I am happy to include paid events, precons and paid workshops as well. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your event included in the Calendar.
Note: the twitterjam for Europe SQL people will be held on the first Monday of the month at 5pm. The next one will be held on 7th March at 5pm GMT. And yes, it is in the calendar!
Also, I am happy to ‘share’ the Google calendar as well as the Power BI workbook.
