Automate your SSIS development with BIML
Ever tried to import a file with the Import/Export wizard? Or created a bunch of SSIS packages to process a data warehouse load? Then you know how much work it is to specify the metadata correctly just to create a package that actually works. Wouldn't it be cool if you had a descriptive language which looks at your metadata and just created the packages for you? This is what BIML is all about. In this session I explain what BIML is, how it works and I'll show you how you can generate your packages and quickly respond to changes. You can expect a demo rich session with lots of notes from the field and practical examples. This is not just for BI developers, DBA's or SQL developers who need to import or export data occasionally will learn some quick and easy tricks as well.

I’m a SQL Server consultant based in the Netherlands. I’m a SQL Server MVP and I’m the co-founder and current chairman of the Dutch PASS Chapter and a member of the volunteer team for the Dutch SQL Saturday’s. I’ve done a whole lot of pure DBA work managing 100′s of servers and learning something new every day.
These days I spend a lot of time on just a few servers containing some large databases and the better part of the day is spent with SSIS. In both roles I’ve been using Powershell a lot. I joke sometimes that I replaced myself with a powershell script when leaving the DBA role, but these days I automate so much that I have to watch myself and not actually do just that
