I had a great time presenting on Build Your Own Dashboards at the SQL Saturday #174 Charlotte BI Edition.  Thank you to everyone who came to my session and participated in my talk.

Here is a link to the sample dashboard site I presented on:


Be advised that this site and the sample code is only optimized for IE 9.  You need to provide CSS3 vendor specific entries for WebKit and Mozilla if you want this to work perfectly in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

Here are the slides and sample code:

I am excited to be speaking at the SQL Saturday #174 Charlotte BI Edition event on October 27, 2012!

Here is my presentation summary:

Need to have some dashboard reports that support cross-platform devices?  Ever wanted to build your dashboard and see it on the iPad or Android, or Windows 8 Surface?  With this session, we will take a look at what it takes to provide simple dashboards using goodness of HTML5.  We will look at using client-side JavaScript to provide our data using Web API and JSON.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Charlotte ALT.NET Meeting 5/20/2010

I will be speaking at the Charlotte ALT.NET user’s group. My topic will be on dashboards. I will be showcasing the dashboard that I have designed and developed for emGovPower. Here is the summary of the presentation:

Building a dashboard and supporting it can sometimes be very a time consuming and tedious task for any IT department. Many systems have been put into place to support reporting off of cubes and systems such as Hyperion, Business Objects, and Microsoft Analysis Services/Reporting Services. If what you need is the ability to let your business build a dashboard based on the data that they already know then perhaps providing a custom simple system is all you need. Here is where Silverlight comes to the rescue coupled WCF Services. With these two technologies a simple intuitive dashboard system can be put into place where the ownership and maintenance of the dashboard belongs to the business and not IT.

See you there…
