Colorado SQL Server User Groups – May

I saw a post from Marc Beacom on the presentations this week for various groups. You can get the info on them all from Marc’s post, but basically this is user group week in CO.

  • Tuesday – Boulder
  • Wednesday – Colorado Springs
  • Thursday – Denver

I’m not sure I’ll be at Denver on Thursday. I’d like to go, but I’m having a busy week. I definitely can’t make the other two with my wife out of town this week.

In terms of the presentations, I haven’t seen Mike Fal (Boulder) talk before, but permissions can be a little hairy and this could be a good session. I do like Tom Norman, and he works in the payment/credit card industry, so I am sure that his Encryption talk on Wed will be good. Thur I’d like to see Jason Horner do the short spatial piece since it’s an interesting topic and I’ve been bothering Jason to talk for a few years. Glenn Berry’s Hardware talk is a good one, especially for people that don’t track that stuff. It’s all just “stuff to me” and Glenn is the person I tend to ask for advice if I’m looking for new hardware. Worth going to see.

Enjoy the SQL week in CO, and if you would like to come speak, give a ring. You can do a one week tour, hitting all three group sometime and we’ll line up some hosts to ensure you have fun. If you want to come ski from Nov-Apr, I’ve love to have you.

Thanks for pushing out the meeting info to the larger community Steve! All three groups are growing and seeing larger attendance.  It's a great way for folks to network and learn.
