What we're about

The Sacramento SQL Server User Group (http://sac.pass.org/) is a local chapter of the Professional Association for SQL Server (http://www.pass.org) (PASS). The mission of PASS is to empower data professionals who leverage Microsoft technologies to connect, share, and learn through networking, knowledge sharing, and peer-based learning. We meet the first Wednesday of each month (6PM to 8PM) to discuss anything SQL Server. Additionally, we host a SQLSaturday (http://www.sqlsaturday.com/) event every summer.

We are new to Meetup.com, but we are not a new group; we've been meeting since March, 2010! For more info on our history, check out http://sac.pass.org .

Monthly meetings usually feature a presentation, but a few times per year we just have an open forum that allows attendees to discuss real-world SQL Server related questions, issues and concerns which are addressed as a group.

We start each meeting with some time to network and get situated. Unless otherwise noted, the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM: Mingle/networking, get food & beverages, presentation setup
6:15 PM - 6:30 PM: Group announcements, agenda, introduce speaker
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM: Presentation
7:30 PM - 8:00 PM: Post-meeting discussions.
