"SQL Server Permissions and Security Principals" at SQLSaturday Charlotte This Weekend!

I'll be presenting my talk on SQL Server Permissions and Security Principals this weekend at SQLSaturday #560 Charlotte, NC.

As a SQLSat veteran and organizer, I regularly receive feedback that there needs to be "more" content at the elementary level for new folks in the field, students, etc. I try to give this presentation as often as possible to make sure there is useful and practical content at any community conference for entry-level technical folks. They are, after all, our future coworkers.

The session is a ground-floor introduction to SQL Server permissions starting with the basics and moving into the security implications behinds stored procedures, views, database ownership, application connections, contained databases, application roles and more. This class is perfect for DBA's, developers and system admins, and we'll cover security basics for Azure SQL Database as well.

This will be my first time at SQLSat Charlotte, looking forward to meeting everyone there. Fun Fact: this will actually be my first time speaking at a SQLSaturday in the US Eastern Time Zone.

My colleagues from Sparkhound will also be presenting in the same room immediately afterwards, Using PowerBI and SQL Server to Create Management Cadence Dashboards.

See you there!
