The Wellington SQL Server User Group is a community user group that strives to promote networking and professional interaction to help the SQL Professional get the most out of Microsoft SQL Server, and to strengthen the profile of SQL Server in the Wellington IT Industry. There is a large community of both developers and IT Professionals using SQL Server that stands to benefit from more regular and accessible activities in Wellington.

The group usually meets at 4pm on the second or third Wednesday of the month but this may change from time to time, so please check details for confirmation.

Membership, meetings and presentations and food/drink are free unless advised otherwise. To join, click on the "Register" link under login on this page, and enter your details. Any enquiries can be sent to wellingtonssug@gmail.com.

If you think any of our sessions might be of interest to a friend or colleague, feel free to bring them along with you - they don't have to be a member of the group to attend. Just make sure you let us know so we can cater for them too.
