SQL Saturday Preconference Optional System Requirements

If you are attending the preconference session on Building a Complete BI Solution on April 11 in Lisbon at SQL Saturday #267, I will provide all of the project and data files that I will be using at the beginning of the session.  You are welcome to follow-along with the finished project files but this is not a requirement to attend the session.  You are also welcome to simply attend and take notes and then you can download the samples later.

We will be using a fairly large volume of data for a laptop machine which increases the system requirement but you can load a subset of the data files if you prefer.  There are two different demo solutions and the system requirements are different for each.
