This is a FREE group where you can learn about all aspects of the Microsoft Data Platform, from on-premises SQL Server and the cloud data offerings from Microsoft in Azure and even using SQL Server in AWS. We can have topics that cover administration, development, BI, ETL, and big data solutions.
We typically meet on the 4th Monday of the month alternating between the Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth (January, March, May, July, September, November) and BankW Holdings in Bedford (February, April, June, August, October). An email will be sent out announcing the meeting. Please RSVP to attend so we can plan for appetizers in Portsmouth and Pizza in Bedford.
