    Lightning Round!

    For February we are hosting an all lightning round meetup with both the .NET and the SQL Server user group. We are aiming to have topics that are interesting to both groups. We have a number so far but are still looking for a few more speakers.


    - It's 2018, so what's new SQL Server 2017?
    - SQL Server on the AWS Relational Database Service (RDS)
    - Getting started with Azure Table Storage
    - PowerShell is your friend!
    - More TBA

    More presentations to come! We will send out updates as we get closer to the meeting time. Again, if you are interested in giving a lightning talk (10-15 minutes), please reach out to any of the officers through meetup and let us know so we can get you on the schedule.

     Please also visit our site and RSVP!

    Lightning Round Presenter: Andy Parkerson, Web Developer and Dreamer of Dreams, ShoppersChoice

    Detail: When you want to graph data from various measures with vastly different scales, often the largest scaled data can dwarf the other data, or force it to the edge altogether. In this talk we will discuss the problem and its solution. We will also discuss variations on the theme when the data is in particular structures that make the first solution not work.

    Bio: Andy is a PowerBI developer, web developer and digital ad expert for a local ecommerce. He is currently interested in embedded PowerBI, and learning what all the hype about R is about.

    Main Presenter: Matthew Tessier

    Topic: The DBA Escape Room - No One Leaves Until Production is Back Online 

    Detail: This is it, the dreaded all hands on deck call.  The production database is dead in the water and the whole team has been called in to the office to get it back online.  It's a full blown Resume Generating Event if the database cannot be recovered right up to the point of failure.  So brush up on your DBCC commands and prepare to think outside the box.

    Bio: Matthew Tessier is a long time computer geek also into Sci-fi and Disney.  While mostly working with the Microsoft databases, he has been known to dabble with Linux and Raspberry Pi single board computers, when the mood strikes him.
