This review is from: The Internship [DVD] (DVD)
Wedding Crashers now crashing Google! Awesome! I really have big loughs and
great team working lessons watching this movie!

Memorable quotes:

- Nick Campbell: "People have a deep distrust of machines. Have you seen Terminator? Or 2? Or 3? Or 4?"

Nick: You got us a job at Google?
Billy: Well, not a job job. It’s an interview for an internship that could lead to a job. Nick, this might be the last chance that we’ve got.

Mr. Chetty: We have rules. The red paddle indicates no, the green paddle indicates yes.
Mr. Chetty: Having a beer with your boss.
[all interns raise their red paddles, except Billy and Nick]
Billy: You want to grab a cold one with me, you let me know.
Mr. Chetty: I will not be grabbing a cold one with you.
Billy: You get high?
[moves on to next rule]
Mr. Chetty: Dating a fellow intern.
[all other interns raise their red paddle, Billy raises his green paddle]
Billy: Yes.
Mr. Chetty: No.
Mr. Chetty: This is Google, not Match.com
Billy: So we’ll say “no” to love?
Mr. Chetty: We’ll say “no” to love.
Any questions?
Billy: Is a one-night-stand considered dating?

The ending has a great lesson on the weird concept of "googliness", that I understood
is something beyond normal intelligence to grasp. A great way to spend some hours and have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just follow the money!, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
407 pages of pure gold! This book is not like others. It is an effective eye-opener and a great tool for serious Forex Traders. I am now more careful when putting together my weekly currency pairs watch list every Sunday night, before market Asia markets open. Great book. The holy grail of Forex Trading. KISS (Keep it Super Simple) philosophy. The list of available and valuable financial data resources is awesome. Market Sentiment is what really matters. It gives a good understanding of money flow movement, from low risk assets to high risk assets and back to low risk assets. This is very interesting. The correlations between bonds, bonds yields, hard commodities, interest rates, soft commodities, equities and currencies is nice to discover in rich details backed up with actual samples and charts screenshots. It shows many things other forex traders books miss, specially the big picture on what really moves and shakes Forex markets and global economies. The key to success is to merge three roles into one: Relational trader, Fundamental trader and Technical trader. Whoever can make this merge becomes a "game changer", which is not easy task but possible. Thanks Anna, for reminding me that data is live and it’s free out there. All we have to do is put it together in a useful way and Anna is very good giving you tips and tools on how to do it. To reveal to me so much about sentiment, risk and money flow is to finally put together many days of macro economy college courses and with a deeper and simpler and more practical down-to-earth understanding.

Expert Cube Development with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services
Expert Cube Development with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services
by Chris Webb
Edition: Paperback
Price: £30.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read book for Cube Developers that are already designing, deploying and processing OLAP cubes beyond ordinary complexity, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Warning. This book is not for beginners but for us, OLAP cube developer that have already several OLAP cubes (SSAS) projects in production environment and are now dealing with advance topics such as scalability, fast design, implementation and maintenance. I had the privilege of having Chris Webb (author) as my Microsoft Instructor here in Dublin, Ireland. I am very impress with his expertise using MDX query language. Chapter 3, Designing More Complex Dimensions, Chapter 9: Securing the Cube and Chapter 10 on Productionization are definitely my favorites. There is a good collection resources and tools for monitoring Cube Performance and Usage. A must read for serious Cube Developers, especially those facing scalability and complexity challenges.

Microsoft® PowerPivot for Excel® 2010: Give Your Data Meaning (Business Skills)
by Marco Russo
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a tool that provides business analyst a full customizable and friend view of big data and OLAP cubes using just Excel !!, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is practically no learning curve for business analysts when using their favorite tool, Microsoft Excel, to navigate and explore big data and OLAP cubes fact and dimensions using PowerPivot. The PowerPivot is just an add-in to Microsoft Excel 2010 that allows quick import, sort, filter massive data sets and simplify year-to-date, closing balance, data-driven computations, calculate ratios, ranking, standard deviation, pareto analysis, sophisticated PivotTables, reports, charts and ability to do complete Excel formulas with DAX PowerPivot language, and possibility to "browse" millions of rows of data inside spreadsheet, taking full advantage of Microsoft Excel 2010 1,048,576 rows by 16,384 columns limits. I have worked in several big and small data warehouse projects here In Dublin, Ireland. I am always amazed on how PowerPivot puts business analysis quickly together on same page with data warehouse modelers and architects, technical developers, testers and IT project managers, making their participation in Agile Scrum meetings a more effective one, especially when constant business insights into the data are required on a sprint by sprint basis. A must use tool for serious Business Analysis. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAM your data warehouse designs using the awesome 7ws (who?, what?, when?, where?, how many?, why?, how?). A must read!!!, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent and useful insight into Agile and data warehouse design techniques. Easy and fun read for us, Data warehouse developer that had hit the wall many times doing wrong things. This book finally showed me the light. the ModelStorming (data modeling + brainstorming) with BI stakeholders is awesome and revolutionary. In particular, my favorite parts are Chapter 2, BEAM (Business Events Analysis & Modeling) in action by telling stories and describe events using 7Ws (When? Who? What? Where? How Many? Why? How?), story boarding the data warehouse to discover conformed dimensions and plan iterative development and also the Event Matrix while modeling business process. This book is a must-read, highly recommended for all data warehouse developers and architects, especially those still not using Agile methodologies, like those still struggling to deliver successful flexible project using Waterfall approach.
