  1. Lynn Langit has put together a series of 33 bite-sized Webcasts on business intelligence (BI). The Webcasts

  2. Kris says:

    Thanks you for posting these. This is a great way to learn – especially for someone not familiar with OLAP related technologies.

  3. So I see all these great posts during the week and I think, “I wonder if everyone else is seeing this

  4. Larry says:

    Andrew, lots of people see these posts, but we’re just shy around Lynn (It’s called the little red-haired girl syndrome, lol)

    btw, Lynn, do you have a recommended order for viewing these videos?  …and btw2…thanks for producing them 🙂

    Thank you for your new book and Webcasts on BI. I am very interested to see a series of 33 Webcasts but I have a problem with stopping and continous buffering. So for me it is impossible. Would be possible to get all the Webcasts by downloading or sending to my email: mjedrus@wp.pl?

  6. mjedrus says:

    Now download does not work. I get a blank page everytime.

  7. Dean says:

    Lynn, I can not find a way to download these for offline viewing (while I’m on a plane) it looks like the only way to watch these is online. Could this be changed so that they can be downloaded like the other content

    @Mjedrus @Dean – here’s a link to the Skydrive folder for direct downloading


    Also, I’ve had requests to list the series order – it’s in the ‘Outline’ text document on the Skydrive
