I’ll be giving a presentation on the somewhat unlikely subject of the title at the next NYC SQL Saturday at Microsoft HQ on May 30, 2015. It will be a largely non-technical, non-demo presentation about accounting and bookkeeping concepts developers are likely to encounter if they have to interact with financial recordkeeping applications, particularly in data warehousing and business intelligence contexts. I will also offer reasons why learning about this (in more depth than is possible in this session) represents great career development for the average developer.
There will be one tech hook wherein I will demonstrate how Microsoft’s Analysis Services directly supports some of the mechanisms of bookkeeping.
The all-day event is free (except for lunch) and has a host of valuable sessions on a wide variety of mostly technical SQL Server topics. Here is the link: http://www.sqlsaturday.com/380/EventHome.aspx
