What we're about
Microsoft Data Platform Group - Bringing the West Midlands Microsoft data platform community together.
We normally hold meetings every other month, usually on a Thursday after work in the centre of Birmingham. It's an informal gathering of like minded people, with a couple of speakers presenting hour long sessions including tips, techniques and information on old, new and upcoming technology.
We like to get a mixture of world leading speakers as well as providing an opportunity for our members to present. We tailor the speakers and sessions to your requests so if you have any specific topics that you want to go through, then come along and let us know. Each meetup consists of two speakers presenting topics for an hour each, with a break in the middle for some food and networking.
We're part of the UK SQL Server community and an official PASS chapter (the Professional Association for SQL Server) covering the Midlands in the UK.
