Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server Users Group! We represent the SQL Server community in Louisville, the surrounding metropolitan area, and throughout most of Kentucky. As a technical users group, we focus on monthly meetings, but also provide networking, learning opportunities, speaking opportunities, training, and collaboration for SQL Server professionals throughout the Ohio Valley area. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, either at lunchtime in the downtown Louisville area or in the evening outside downtown. This alternating approach to meeting times and locations allows us to support as many of our users as possible and provides different venue and time options for our meetings and our attendees. We also partner with various volunteer groups to bring special events to the area, such as SQL Saturdays. Those events typically draw large crowds of SQL Server professionals from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and beyond!

Featured Presentation:

Understanding SSIS Performance

Dave Fackler, Senior BI Architect Rolling Hills Enterprises, Inc.

Many casual users of SSIS (including database professionals using the SSMS Import/Export Wizard) don't necessarily understand the inner workings of SSIS and what factors impact performance. During this session, we'll look at different aspects of SSIS and discuss their impact on package performance. We'll take a deep dive into the Data Flow component, looking at how SSIS manages data as it moves from sources, through transformations, and then to destinations. Finally, we'll talk about several of the top performance-killers casual SSIS users experience and discuss strategies for overcoming these common issues.
