Normally, I don't teach training classes (so many students, so little time), but I'm going to be teaching one from April 22-24 at interRel's training center at the Rangers Ballpark in Dallas, TX. The class is about how to administer Essbase 11 (though we will be pointing out where System 9 and 11 differ) and it's designed for a technical audience. In other words, it's for people who won't be building cubes but will be maintaining them.
Why you might ask am I teaching this class? It's because I have a book coming out in the next couple of weeks on Essbase 11, and I want to try out some of the material in a live class environment. It's always nice to see in-person how people react to your exercises. If they literally throw the book at you, then you have to ease up on some of the more tedious sections.
There are a couple of spots available in this class (I think it's $750/day), so if you want to learn about Essbase administration from me directly, this is about your only chance for the foreseeable future. The last time I taught this class was in 2006, and I'm probably not doing it again until another major release of Essbase comes out. If you want to sign up, visit interRel's website.
Yes, I did say that the Essbase 11 book would be out shortly, so if you want to be the first to own a copy, keep checking lulu.com under keyword "Essbase" over the next few days.
