Contained Databases, the what, why and where, by Jim Dorame
Abstract: SQL Server 2012 Now has Contained Databases, what are they and why do I care. This presentation will explain what a Contained Database is, how to create them and what gotchas there are when dealing with them.
About Jim: He is currently the Database Systems Manager for a large scale educational assessment corporation. He has been working with technology for over 20 years and specifically with Microsoft SQL Server since version 6.5. He decided to start giving back to the community that has provided me with so much information in the past.
The Architect’s View by Lara Rubbelke
Abstract: I have the opportunity to meet with customers in a wide variety of industries, public and private, small and large. Often I am working with architects who are designing future data ecosystems to meet current and impending demands, and many of these architects are already deeply engaged in “the changing world of data”. Come learn what is top of mind with the architects in these organizations, and how they are designing solutions, and what you should know about the solutions that you may be soon be implementing and supporting.
About Lara: She brings her passion for data solutions to customers as a Technical Architect for Microsoft at the Minneapolis Microsoft Technology Center. Her expertise involves Big Data, OLTP and OLAP systems, data management and the Business Intelligence lifecycle. She regularly delivers technical presentations at local, regional and national conferences and events. Notably, Lara is a regular presenter at TechEd, PASS Summit, numerous SQL Server Launches, and has delivered several MSDN and TechNet webcasts.

Special Call for Local Speakers
We are experimenting with a new format to our meetings and we need your help! To encourage the growth of our local SQL presentation talent, we are hoping to fill 15 to 30 minutes per meeting with a fairly new and local speaker. If you are interested in presenting, but not for a full hour, we encourage you to give this shorter, less formal format a try and share what you know. If you are interested let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact any of the board members directly. read more ...
