Postponed Dec 10th User Group Meeting – SQL Server 101 for the IT Pro & SQL Server Chalk Talk

Topic: SQL Server 101 for the IT Pro & SQL Server Chalk Talk

SQL What?!?  What every IT Pro needs to know about SQL Server

More and more products require a SQL Server database.  Are you an IT Pro installing SQL Server but not sure how to support it?  Do you work at a place where you are the IT department?  Well this event is for you!

The OWSUG and user groups are teaming up to bring you a special session dedicated to SQL Server for the non-DBAs.

We will cover important topics that are often overlooked until it is too late, and talk about ways to simplify SQL Server administration.

Topics include:

·         Backup and Restore

·         Checking for data corruption

·         Creating Maintenance plans

·         Sending alerts

·         Setting up email for notifications

·         Security Basics

·         Tips and Tricks, and time saving tools

… and much more!

After the presentations we will have a panel of local DBAs, SQL Server veterans and Microsoft MVPs ready to answer your questions in an informal SQL Server Chalk Talk
