Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server & Power BI Users Group!

Our group is generally made up of folks that hail from the Derby City and surrounding Ohio River Valley area, who all have a passion for Microsoft SQL Server and the technologies that surround it. 

We are a diverse group with skills ranging from "accidental DBA's" to senior administrators, seasoned developers to big data analysts and all of the other backgrounds that fall in between.

Do you love to learn? 

Do you love sharing what you know about the complex challenges of working with SQL Server?

Then come join us, and make yourself at home.

Introduction to 'R' for Data Professionals

Join us on Thursday, October 13th for the next meeting of the Louisville SQL Server and Power BI Users Group! We will meet at the Humana Training Center in the Waterfront Plaza in downtown Louisville. Meeting information is as follows:

Topic:  Introduction to 'R' for Data Professionals

Description:  Chip’s talk is ostensibly about the “R” statistical language and how Microsoft is promoting its use in Power BI as well as the SQL Server 2016 and Azure ecosystems.  The talk will serve as an introduction to R, and display some examples of how statistical modeling and predictive analytics can be used to enhance database and business intelligence deployments in a Microsoft SQL environment.

Speaker: Chip Lynch

Chip Lynch is a Louisville native – an Atherton Rebel – with a Math and Computer Science degree from Xavier University.  He has 20 years’ experience working in data systems and is currently a Data Warehouse Architect at Farm Credit Mid America.  While wandering around after college he has done consulting on data systems for NASA, the US Air Force, the US Senate, and a bunch of other places that don’t sound nearly as cool.  Chip also wanted to plug “Louisville Makes Games”, a local non-profit he co-founded to promote video game development in the Louisville area, back when he thought pursuing a graduate degree in Data Mining at U of L wouldn’t take up enough of his free time.
