What we're about

If you are working with data in any way and are interested in meeting other data professionals in the South West then please contact us.

We are a group of DBAs, BI professionals and developers from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset who get together in Exeter once a month to talk about anything related to data and databases, . If you live or work in the South West of the UK or are in the area on business or holiday then we’d be happy to see you; scroll down or contact us for details of upcoming meetings.

The group is for anyone working with SQL Server or anyone interested in starting to work with it. You may be a full time DBA or developer or someone looking to understand SQL Server things more clearly or maybe you are the guy that didn’t run fast enough when the last DBA left.

You can find our code of conduct at Code Of Conduct (https://www.meetup.com/data-south-west-uk/pages/31325071/Code_of_Conduct/)
