All the SQL Server User Groups in the UK are totally free to attend. They are paid for by a mix of Microsoft and other sponsors and sometimes, just sometimes out of the pockets of the leaders themselves – so remember to thank them!
Typically each event will have two or three presenters speaking on a range of different topics. The speakers can range from first timers presenting some tricks or something new they have just learned to Microsoft Certified Architects so there really is something for everyone at every level.
Where possible (budget allowing) we do try to put on some food, so please do speak up if you have any special dietary requirements.
But, don’t just take my word for it, earlier this year I interviewed Gina Walters who runs a PASS Chapter in the US. You can read about what they get up to here.
Believe it or not there’s actually a committee of User Group leaders so we are pretty structured! We can help you to find speakers and how to apply for funding.
Assuming that when you read this I haven’t changed my site layout again, you can Contact Me using the Menu at the top of the website, or the page list at the bottom. Once you’ve made contact the rest of the leaders and I will be able to talk you through what else would be involved.
