    With examples of real problems and (attempted) solutions, this presentation will examine dimensional modeling techniques which simplify and speed up measure evaluation. A fast-paced and language/tool-agnostic look at some common and uncommon reporting scenarios, including:

    • All manner of date calculations and comparisons
    • Slowly changing dimensions
