Midlands PASS Chapter Meeting for June 6, 2007

Brian Kelley, 2007-05-29

Our next meeting will be on Thursday, June 7th, at

6:30 PM. Training Concepts will once again be our gracious host. I’ll be

speaking on the following:

Title: Making the SQL Server

Security Model Work for You

SQL Server has a very robust security model with

ownership chaining, cross-database ownership chaining, and security down to the

column level. SQL Server 2005 adds user-schema separation, built-in encryption,

and the concept of credentials. This talk will discuss the key security features

of the two latest versions of SQL Server, how they can be applied to secure your

data, and how you can gain efficiencies in their use.

I’ll try and get pizza for this meeting. With

respect to swag we’ve got several of the PASS Summit bags left over from last

year’s meeting in Orlando. They are large and sturdy and are good for carrying a

laptop and several technical books. These tend to hold up well. I still use mine

from the 2004 Summit on a daily basis and it only has a limited amount of wear

& tear on it.

As with last time, if you are planning on attending

please RSVP so I can inform our hosts of the approximate number so they can

accomodate us accordingly. Also, I’ll need to pass on to you the building code

since the doors lock at 6 PM.

Training Concepts is located at 250 Berryhill Road

in Suite 502. You can visit their web site at: http://www.trainingconcepts.com/

One last note: we’re always looking for speakers so

if you’d like to talk on a topic or know of a good speaker with a SQL Server

related focus, send me an email. We’ve had a request from a couple of members

for a good technical talk on SQL Server Integration Services and it looks like

we may be able to lock in a top-notch speaker for July (keep your fingers

crossed). With that said, we exist to encourage and improve our members and that

includes in the realm of public speaking. If you think you’re up for a

presentation to the group, I’ll help you in any way I can to put it together.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
