SQL PASS Detroit


We have meetings on the second Thursday of every month.

Each meeting start with a short introduction and Q & A session, where we'll have chapter news and may also have job announcements.  The normal schedule for each meeting is:

6:00 - 6:10    General Introduction, announcements and general Q & A
6:10 - 7:30    Main presentation (90-minute presentations will run until 8:00)
   Question and answer session to follow

Thanks to the help of some really amazing speakers, we have 2019 lined up with some great topics.  Special thanks go out to the wonderful folks at Pet Supplies Plus Corporate Headquarters in Livonia, Michigan.  They've given us a home since December 2017.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is on 6/13/2019. Reservations can be made on the Eventbrite page.

DBA: What's Most Important
There are so many things for a DBA to focus on that it can be overwhelming, especially for a new DBA. With all of the different responsibilities that can go with the job, the new or accidental DBA can find themselves trying to plan out so many "top priorities" at once that nothing gets done. This presentation is an overview of five key topics for any DBA, regardless of industry.
