Welcome to the Data Architecture Virtual Chapter
Chairs: Thomas LeBlanc (blog|@TheSmilingDBA)
Site Admin: Robert Canzonire
If you have any questions about the group please drop us a line. If you're interested in speaking we're especially interested to hear from you. Elections for officers are held during the April meeting.
We're also affiliated with the Professional Association for SQL Server. This is a world-wide SQL Server Users Group. PASS holds a conference each year.
Initially, we will probably run a meeting every second month (more often if possible). A typical agenda will something like the following:
While it would be wonderful to be able to present industry experts every meeting, there's also value in the lessons learnt by people who are doing Data Architecture "in the trenches", so the VC won't just be doing sessions on abstract design principles. The D'ArcVC will definitely offer "coal-face" content that people can use in their day-to-day jobs.
It should also be noted that anyone interested in presenting - whether it be a 10 minute "Short" or a full 45-minute deck or demo - should contact us via the portal.
