Blogging from Techdays 2008 Venue

October 30th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here is my presentation wrapped up at Techdays 2008 Toronto,  2 hours later , I’m sitting at the speaker room doing what every *normal* geek does! Writing a follow up blog post on my session. Truth to be told, once I am done with his blog post, I feel comfortable saying goodbye to Toronto and say hello to Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver’s upcoming sessions! can’t wait to see folks in west coast….I am in particular excited about Vancouver because 3 years ago when I immigrated to Canada I first landed there and I have very good Canadian friends back there who taught me how to converse, convey and write in English so I feel kind of attached to the city!

Alright , let’s get to the formal THANK YOU paragraph :

First and foremost, I’d like to thank every each of you for attending my session. Data track room was packed and I truly had fun , up on the stage, presenting to all 250 people sitting in the room.  I am hoping that you managed to walk away from this presentation with some take away. I apologize about wsdl command line not working as  I had left my contacts at home and I had difficulty reading the small fonts on the virtual machines (Yeah one of VMs and the mic was really driving me around the band) , therefore I didn’t notice that I was misspelling it .Below is a picture that shows how a call into the wsdl command line is made to get the proxy class generated for you from the ReportService2006.asmx endpoint.


With that being said, here are couple follow up points to my session:

1) Due to the volume of the things I wanted to share with you , I didn’t have the chance to spend enough time on the security context of your executing reports as much as I had planned to.  I would highly recommend that you read the following post before touching anything, because you want to avoid headaches. right?

 SSRS 2008 integrated mode: Security

2)  On the beginning of my presentation I demonstrated that how you can flip the configuration from native to integrated mode. you remember that? cool , here is the blog post that walks you through the steps with lots of screen shots . Enjoy!

 Shifting From SSRS 2008 Native to Integrated For Good

3)  Mini IIS term I referred to during my session has been clearly document here:

Say Goodbye to IIS, Say Hello to HTTP.SYS!

4) Powershell and Feature code and a walk through : Put the mouse pointer here and here and kindly press the right button!

5) Data Driven Subscriptions Part1 and Part2 – Remember, If you googled it , that’s me LOL

Got a question? Drop me a line!

Now I can go home, relax and have a nice cigar in my bathtub! 🙂
