Welcome

The Sacramento SQL Server User Group meets the first Wednesday of every month. Most sessions will have a presentation; however, throughout the year we schedule a few group sessions designed to provide a forum that allows attendees to discuss real-world SQL Server related questions, issues and concerns which are addressed as a group.

We start each meeting with some time to network and get situated. Unless otherwise noted, the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM: Mingle/networking, get food & beverages, presentation setup
6:15 PM - 6:30 PM: Group announcements, agenda, introduce speaker
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM: Presentation
7:30 PM - 8:00 PM: Post-meeting discussions


New Meeting Location:

We have a new meeting location as of October 2013:

Patrick Hays Learning Center
2700 Gateway Oaks Drive
Suite 2600
Sacramento, CA 95833
