What we're about

Southampton Data Platform and Cloud user group has been running since 2010 (originally Southampton SQL Server User Group). In that time we have had many speakers both local and international present high-quality sessions on a range of SQL Server and data platform topics. We host the user group at 2 Venture Road, on the Science Park at Chilworth on the second Wednesday of each month.

We aim to deliver high-quality training and insight for free to the Data Platform community.

The user group has been run by John Q Martin & Steph Martin since 2012, during which time we have seen the group grow significantly with members joining and moving on.

Ten years later Mikey Bronowski took over the user group.

We are sponsored by SpectrumIT who are a local recruitment company, setup by recruitment agents who have helped us by providing the location, Pizza and an Amazon voucher to raffle off each meeting.

As a member of this meetup group, you are agreeing to follow the terms set out in the Azure Tech Groups code of conduct here.
