How Functional Programming Made Me a Better Developer With the rise in popularity recently, functional programming has become “”The Next Big Thing””. As of today, there are tons of frameworks and tools that can be used for front-end, back-end, desktop, and mobile development. With that being said, the majority of us are still using object-oriented languages for our day jobs and don’t need to learn functional programming, right? In this talk, I’ll walk you through my experiences learning functional programming over the last year, how my style of programming has changed, and how I now think about programming with regards to both functional and object-oriented paradigms.

How easy is it to hack a SQL Server? In this session we'll see examples on how to exploit SQL Server, modify data and take control, while at the same time not leaving a trace. We'll start by gaining access to a SQL Server (using some "creative" ways of making man-in-the-middle attacks), escalating privileges and tampering with data at the TDS protocol level (e.g. changing your income level and reverting without a trace after payment), and more. Most importantly, we'll also cover recommendations on how to avoid these attacks, and take a look at the pros and cons of new security features in SQL Server 2016. This is a demo-driven session, suited for SQL Server DBAs, developers and security consultants. Disclaimer: No actual state secrets will be revealed. Please do not send agents to my house again. Speaker: André Melancia Developer / DBA / Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT)
