The Orlando SQL user group (OPASS) meets the third or fourth Thursday of every month at Logan's Roadhouse in Sanford, FL. We feature a different speaker every month covering a variety of topics. This is a free event centered around Microsoft SQL server, where everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Come join us for free learning, networking, food, and fun.

Featured Presentation:

Building A Learning Plan

Andy Warren, President Fourdeuce Inc

What should you learn next? How do you decide which topic is the most valuable? Once you pick a topic, how you much time and money should you spend learning it? Where do you go to learn – web, class, video? None of those are easy to answer, but there are answers! This presentation will show you how to build and use a learning list to decide what to learn next, and it will take you through building a learning plan for the topic you pick. It’s a powerful approach that will move you ahead and make you feel like you’re in control of your destiny.

Credit Card Security For the SQL DBA

Andy Warren, President Fourdeuce Inc

Are you storing or planning to store credit card numbers? If so, you need to learn all you can about the requirements for PCI compliance. We'll cover how PCI works from the requirements to the final audit, and everything in between that you'll need to know something about. We'll talk about encryption, key management, logging, alerting, administration access, granular permissions, tokenization, and as much more as we can fit into an hour. It's a complex topic, but that just makes it more interesting!
