Featured Presentation

Using SQL Server to Query Active Directory

Speaker: Zap Riecken

Summary: Together we will walk through the process to use your SQL Server to reach into Active Directory (AD) to leverage this ripe data store. Starting from scratch we will walk through all of the steps needed to setup a connection to AD, how to retrieve data, and what data is available. Additionally, we will go over some of the shortfalls and even review some common challenges with how the data was architected.

About Zap: Zap is a Sr. DBA at Washington State Employee Credit Union. He has been working with SQL Server since version 6.5 back in 1999 and is currently pursuing as Master in Data Science from Regis University. After working an Integration Engineer for International Gaming Technologies in Vegas for ten years he returned back to Olympia. This is his first presentation of many, hopefully.

Call for Speakers

Peter Palka is trying to put together a 6 month calendar of speakers and topics. Peter would like to start having two presentations per meeting. One topic could be a short 15 minute presentation and then the other could be a 60-90 minute topic. 

 If you have done something you think is noteworthy that others could benefit from, Peter would like to hear from you. He is willing to help you turn any ideas you have into a presentation. OASSUG is a user group, provided and supported by local area SQL Server users.

  Remember you don’t have to do a full-blown 90 minute presentation; even just a short presentation would be a great way to support our local SQL Server user group.
