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:

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.

Our next meeting is on 7/11/2019. Reservations can be made on the Eventbrite page.

Understanding SQL Server Backup and Restore
Everyone knows that it's critical to have backups but it's amazing how few people make sure those backups can be restored properly! Too many times to count, Tim has been brought in by organizations to help recover failed systems where administrators simply didn’t know how to properly restore SQL Server backups when they have to. In this session, Tim will explain the various types of backups that can be taken and demonstrate how to restore each of them. Apart from covering the common full, differential and log backups, Tim will also cover partial, filegroup, and COPY_ONLY backups, backing up to and restoring from a URL, backup encryption, and how to perform a hack attach for the ultimate tail log restore. There's something here for everyone to learn!
