PowerPivot Jump Start!

As you may already know, the new name for Project Gemini is PowerPivot and the official names are PowerPivot for Excel and PowerPivot for SharePoint.  For information and to sign up for notification on the release dates, check out the official PowerPivot web site at http://www.powerpivot.com/

Shortly after the SharePoint conference, our Analysis Services teammates independently created their own very interesting blogs:

  • Rob Collie’s PowerPivotPro.com: Rob is one of the founding engineers behind PowerPivot and has a great theme around football statistics to demo and explain PowerPivot.
  • Dave Wickert’s PowerPivotGeek.com: If you’ve been working with Analysis Services for any length of time, you should already be very familiar with Dave.  He puts his knowledge, humor, and personality into this blog on PowerPivot.

In addition, some solid new content / aggregator blogs include:

  • Vidas Matelis’s PowerPivot-Info.com: Vidas has recreated his SSAS-Info.com resource hub to be dedicated to PowerPivot.
  • As well, there is PowerPivotTwins.com, the name which is a moniker Dave Wickert and I had created at SQLPASS (yes, it is a dork-y homage to the Wonder Twins!).
