  • 2. How to secure the data on your Access & SQL Server application - August, 2019

    More and more databases are stored in cloud, on servers that we don’t control or own. People have started asking how they can protect the data at all times. We will discuss about techniques that we can leverage within Access applications connecting to SQL Server/Azure database without leaking sensitive data, and provide a clean separation between those who has access to data and those who has access to the server administration.

    Please be advised that the presenter, Ben Clothier (multiple Access MVP) is deaf. What you will hear is the voice of the interpreter. Thank you for your understanding.

  • 3. Using OASIS-SVN and git for Access source code control - July, 2019

    Wondered how to use git with Access? In this talk with a lots of demonstrations, we will learn how to effectively use git as a source code control and use its capabilities to provide a solid history of changes for easy review and management. We will use OASIS-SVN and TortoiseGit to help make the job easier and talk briefly about how git should be used.

  • 4. Analyzing Access application performance using ODBC SQL tracing - June, 2019

    We will learn how to troubleshoot slow Access forms / reports with a remote SQL Server backend by using the ODBC SQL to collect the actual queries Access is sending to SQL Server and review those queries to identify the culprit for poor performance. We will also cover some optimization strategies to help improve the responsiveness of the forms.
