Absolute beginner/introduction session on Power BI for Office 365 - Kevin Goff

 

Bio: Kevin S. Goff (http://www.kevinsgoff.net) is a Microsoft SQL Server MVP

Database architect/developer/speaker/author

Regular columnist for CoDe Magazine on .NET, SQL Server, and Business Intelligence topics

 

Frequent speaker at community events  in the Mid-Atlantic region.

 

Host of BDBI Radio (http://www.bdbiradio.com), a webcast on SQL/BI topics

 

 

Abstract: As the title states, this is an absolute beginner’s presentation.  I actually create a brand new Power BI site, completely from scratch, then provision it, set up a gateway, and then create a few basic examples.  The objective isn’t to show off all the cool visualizations in PowerView and PowerPivot, it’s more to show the core mechanics of creating a site, pushing up content, and setting up a refresh through the gateway.  The presentation is intended to show to brand new people that it’s really not that difficult.   At the conclusion I’ll talk about some of the new features coming down the pike soon for Power BI.

The Spy Who Loathed Me - An Intro to SQL Security - Chris Bell

Bio: Speaker photo Chris Bell (MCITP) has been working with Microsoft technologies for over 20 years and using SQL Server for over 18 of those years. He is currently the Owner and Lead consultant for WaterOx Consulting, a Maryland based company focused on helping companies that can’t afford or justify a full time data team, get the most from their SQL Server environments. For more information please visit WateroxConsulting.com

Abstract: You have lots of data you have painstakingly collected over the years. How do you ensure that data is protected from hackers, spies and other ne’er-do-wells? Understanding the vast array of security features available in SQL Server is the first step in helping you determine what actions you need to take now to protect your data.

NOTE: The Microsoft building has ample garage parking attached to the building and a large surface parking lot in the rear of the building. Both are free and do not require any type of badge or ticket to enter or exit.”  We are on the 3rd floor, Room 3062.  The building doors will be open as well as elevator access to the 3rd floor.

Team-based Database Development: Playing Nice With Others’ - Samuel Vanga

Bio: Sam Vanga helps business people solve their data problems and enables them make data-driven decisions. His specialties include data integration, data warehouse and database development, and BI design. Sam blogs at http://SamuelVanga.com.

Abstract: As soon as you have more than one person on a development effort, you’re basically guaranteed to see collaboration and integration issues. Most commonly, you won’t always know what other people are working on, your changes may break their code, and your team is actually LESS effective than the individuals. In this session, we’ll cover how development practices such as version control, unit testing and continuous integration can help ease some of your database team-development headaches. We’ll go over demonstrations of how to implement these practices in your environment (using Red Gate tools in this case) to improve the efficiency and quality of your database development process, and play nicely with the other developers on your team.
