I just finished delivering the first two rounds of the BI Development course--in Munich and London.

One of the most popular sections was a comparison between SQL and MDX queries. In it, I try to clarify a) how the query structures are similar, b) how they way they are interpreted is different, and c) how MDX is very powerful and extensible for reporting--given the modular nature of set functions.

This is not particularly new for Yukon, but in fact the UDM is a major feature of Yukon, and access to the UDM requires MDX queries, so it becomes increasingly relevant in Yukon.
