What we're about

Microsoft Data Platform Group - Bringing the West Midlands Microsoft data platform community together.

WHAT?

Now a virtual meeting held on the first Thursday of every month but Prior to the covid-19 pandemic held 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.

Kindly sponsored by RP Analytics (https://www.rattrayparkin.com/divisions/business-intelligence.aspx), Ricoh Digital Services and Purple Frog Systems (https://www.PurpleFrogSystems.com).
