What we're about

We have decided to merge the Gulf Datacenter Community and SQL Server User groups and create a new Azure UAE group.

Our aim is to create a community for people of all skill levels who want to learn about Microsoft Cloud & Datacentre infrastructure technologies, SQL Server and Data / AI. We meet once fortnight on Wednesdays in Dubai and also plan to run full day events once a quarter.

The format of the meetups will begin with a roundup of what is new in the last month. There will then be two technical presentations from community experts / Microsoft MVPs / Microsoft Staff / Vendors. All sessions will be recorded. Where possible we will try to do hands on sessions where you can follow along.

At the end of the meetup there will be some time for networking and food.

If you would like to get involved and present / assist please get in touch.
