Last month saw SQL Relay, Tech Ed, SQL Saturday Dublin, oh and the small matter of a CTP for SQL Server 2014. This month we’re slowing down the pace a little so we can all play with CTP1. If you have any questions about it, why not go to one of the five user group events on this month:
|3rd July 2013||Southampton||User Group||Evening||With Chris Webb and Richard Douglas|
|4th July 2013||Edinburgh||User Group||Evening||With Martin Bell and Rob Carrol|
|9th July 2013||Maidenhead||User Group||Evening||With Alex Whittles and John Martin.|
|24th July 2013||Leeds||User Group||Evening||With Neil Hambly and Chris McGowan|
|25th July 2013||Manchester||User Group||Evening||With Neil Hambly and Rick Garner|

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.
