Highlighting Women in the SQL Community - July 2017


Find a mentor.  Be a mentor.
Build a strong network of women.

Make friendships with other women working in your field.

As most of you know, I think it's my calling to highlight & support women in technology, specifically speakers and leaders in the SQL Community.  Each month, our Virtual Group presents a technical session by a female speaker or a session specific to a female gender related topic, presented by a man or woman.  Part of these sessions involves a list of what women are doing.  That's what this blog psot does.  A highlight of what women in the SQL Community are doing in just the second half of July 2017

Today’s Session
uMelissa Coates
uTales from Building a SQL Server Data Warehouse in Azure
uIn this session, we share our experiences and lessons learned from a recent migration to Azure for a SQL Server data warehousing environment. We begin with sharing our reasoning for IaaS vs. PaaS, our carefully-selected naming conventions, and how we structured development, test, and production within subscriptions and resource groups. We cover the what, why, and how for decisions around storage, encryption, and backups. Finally, the session wraps up with a brief discussion of the use of Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates and PowerShell, as well as techniques for monitoring the environment in Azure.
uMelissa Coates is a Business Intelligence Architect with SentryOne. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, she specializes in delivering Analytics, Data Warehousing, and Business Intelligence solutions using on-premises, cloud, and hybrid technologies. Formerly a CPA, Melissa is ridiculously proud to be an IT geek and downright giddy to be a Microsoft Data Platform MVP.
