Level Up Your Biml: Best Practices and Coding Techniques with Cathrine Wilhelmsen

We are very proud to say that Norway has three speakers at this year's PASS Summit. This is the second of two meetings where they will present their Summit sessions for us before they go to Seattle. This time we will see Cathrine's session!

Featured Presentation:

Level Up Your Biml: Best Practices and Coding Techniques with Cathrine Wilhelmsen

Cathrine Wilhelmsen, Senior BI Consultant Inmeta

Is your Biml solution starting to remind you of a bowl of tangled spaghetti code? Good! That means you are solving real problems while saving a lot of time. The next step is to make sure that your solution does not grow too complex and confusing - you do not want to waste all that saved time on future maintenance! Attend this session for an overview of Biml best practices and coding techniques. Learn how to improve and simplify your solution by using some common and some lesser-known Biml features. If standard Biml is not enough, you can implement custom logic by creating your own C# classes and methods. Finally, see how to bring everything together in an example project for creating and loading a data mart with facts and dimensions. Start improving your code today and level up your Biml in no time!
