PASSDC Monthly Chapter meeting

Our regular meeting! In addition to our featured speaker, we're looking forward to hearing from you about how best this user group can support professionals in the DC area. We'll also have food and raffle of a few things at the end!

Featured Presentation: OnPremise to Azure Shannon Lowder, Principle at 52Projects, Inc.

During this talk I'll walk you through the process actually used to migrate a client's systems from hosted in a company closet to multiple Microsoft Azure data centers. Along the way we'll discuss the planning that went into the migration, the testing we went through, the pain points we hit, all the way to up and running in the cloud. This session covers the roadmap, we won't go through the actual migration itself...that took almost a year to complete.

About Shannon:
Look no further for expertise in: Business Analysis to gather the business requirements for the database; Database Architecting to design the logical design of the database; Database Development to actually build the objects needed by the business logic; finally, Database Administration to keep the database running in top form, and making sure there is a disaster recovery plan.


**Announcing Office Hours **

Come buy a drink and participate in a SQL discussion group with Chris Bell and others.

We will head over tothe Capital Grilleafter the meeting for about an hour of a casual open SQL discussion. The topic is not set, but feel free to bring any questions you have, or topics of interest.
