Featured Presentation

Big Data for the SQL Ninja

Speaker: Scott Klein, CTO Cloud and Devices

Summary: As more enterprises start implementing big data/Hadoop solutions, how does the SQL Server DBA support these efforts and do they have the skills and knowledge to integrate big data solutions into their current architecture? This demo-filled session first helps DBAs understand how to apply their existing SQL Server skills in understanding and utilizing Microsoft Azure HDInsight and related technologies. It then shows how Microsoft SQL Server, HDInsight, and related technologies can be used together to solve big data problems.”

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.
