What we're about
The Sydney SQL Server User Group is a group for Database IT Professionals who are interested in the Microsoft SQL Server technology stack and related technologies.
The group meets monthly and covers topics from the following tracks.
• DBA: Database Administration
The DBA track covers topics that are primarily of interest to the Database Administrator such as SQL Server architecture and internals, disaster recovery, high-availability, hardware, performance optimization, troubleshooting and administration.
• DBD: Database Development
The DBD track is for the Database Developer and covers areas such as database design and optimization, indexing, concurrency, Transact-SQL, coding patterns / practices and query optimization.
• ARC: Architecture
The ARC track is designed to address the needs of Solution / Enterprise Architects. This track is more concerned with solution design, architecture patterns and best practises, scalability, SQL Server technologies, and aligning your business with Microsoft's strategy / vision.
We aim to deliver sessions that are of a higher calibre than paid-for events such as Microsoft TechEd/Ignite. The sessions are technically deep, applicable to your work and full of "lessons from the field". You should walk away from a session with a better understanding of the technology and how it can be applied in your organization.
With that in mind please "spread the word". If you need help getting "managerial approval" to spend 2 hours monthly improving your skillset and ability to deliver better outcomes at work please contact me.
I hope to see at the user group soon!
