Another month and we have another installment (meeting) for the Data Professionals of the Las Vegas area.
This month we will be getting back on schedule with the usual meeting time and place. We had a slight divergence last month due to that heartsy holiday.
We are excited about some of the upcoming speakers and feedback we have been getting of late. We are feverishly working to get some presenters on Big Data and Hadoop. If you are in the market to present on these topics, ping me.
Here are some of the details for the meeting.
Presenting is Jason Kassay
Jason Will be presenting to us on the topic of “The Accidental Programmer.
Most people in the database world have heard of the term, “The Accidental DBA”, those programmers who have to work with databases. How about the other side of the coin? What about DBA’s an Dev’s who have to write code or have to work closely with programmers? This presentation is a best practices guide for working with SQL Server in a .Net environment. You will learn how to recognize when bad code is written that interacts with the database, how to track it down, and most importantly how to fix it. On top of that you will also receive an introduction to object oriented programming concepts such as data abstraction, encapsulation, tier architecture, and class objects so that you can better communicate with your programmers.
The meeting location has changed. We will no longer be meeting at The Learning Center. New meeting location is M Staff Solutions & Training / 2620 Regatta Drive Suite 102 Las Vegas, NV 89128.
We are also moving to meetup for meeting management. Please join us for free at http://www.meetup.com/SQL-Server-Society-of-Las-Vegas/
