What we're about

The Northern Virginia Data Platform MeetUp ( formerly, "NOVA SQL Server Users Group") is a SQL Server and Azure Data Platform MeetUp. As data platform roles and responsibilities have evolved, we have broadened our scope to include Microsoft Azure Advanced Analytics, Big Data, and general Azure topics. The goal of the leadership of NOVA Data Platform MeetUp is to provide a comfortable environment where members can participate in multi-disciplinary discussions of Microsoft data platform related issues.
