  Title: Building a Virtual Lab at Home
  Presenter: Matt Velic is a database developer for Sanametrix in Washington, DC. He enjoys helping others succeed by ensuring that they've got the proper resources and support. Toward that goal, Matt is a co-leader of the PASSDC User Group, helps organize DC SQLSaturday events, blogs, presents, and loves hanging out on Twitter.
  Abstract: If you don’t have the chance to work on different kinds of projects, it can be tough to grow all the necessary skills to further your career. Take control of the situation by building a virtual lab at home.

We’ll begin the session by talking about why you might want to build a lab, and what you’ll need to complete the task – nothing more than your home computer and free software. We’ll review the basics of virtualization as it relates to VirtualBox. Finally, we’ll dive into an example of building a Windows Server 2012 cluster, and talk about how you can use these networking and server skills to advance your SQL Server education.
