Intro to Azure Data Catalog

Your company has amassed more data than it can possibly use,
yet no one can find the data they need. This is more common than you think.
With Azure Data Catalog, anyone can find the data they are looking for, no
matter the data source. This session will introduce you to Azure Data
Catalog, what it is, how you can use it and why everyone should be using it.

We are now using Teams!

In order to encourage questions during the presentation, we want people to use the raise hands option in Teams and not talk over each other. Please be mindful of the other attendees!

We will be starting at 4:00 PM

Logins, Users & Roles: SQL Security 101

There are a lot of options for controlling user access inside a SQL Server instance and the granularity offered can be confusing to everyone (including database administrators). In this session we’ll break down permissions from the instance level down, to understand the difference between server and database principals, how server and database roles work, and how to use custom roles and object-level permissions to grant just the right amount of access to our applications and end users. Filled with practical demonstrations this session is geared for developers, junior and accidental DBAs, and system administrators looking to understand how best to implement SQL Server security.

Josh Smith is a production database administrator (going on seven years) as well as a community organizer. They are currently the president of the Inland Northwest Data Professionals Association and helped to organize SQL Saturday Spokane. Josh is perhaps too excited by documentation and cataloging but makes up for it with equal amounts of enthusiasm for automation and database deployment pipelines. When not working or sheltering in place during a global pandemic they are also an Aikido instructor in the Aikido World Alliance.
