SQL South West User Group

SQL South West is a chapter of the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS)

PASS Chapter

If you are using SQL Server in any way and are interested in meeting other SQL professionals in the South West then please contact us.

We are a group of DBAs and developers from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset who get together in Exeter once a month to talk about anything related to SQL. 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.

New: We’re now on Meetup!

April Meeting – Thursday 17th

This month’s meeting is once again at the Jury’s Inn, Exeter, where we will meet downstairs in the conference suite.  Jonathan will be there from soon after 17:00 and the meeting will start around 17:45 until 20:00 and then more than likely adjourn to the hotel bar to carry on an informal chat for a while.

The life of a SQL Server DBA is a busy one. The fount of all knowledge, the SQL Server DBA is often interrupted with small questions and routine tasks. This session will show you some functions that you can use to save time on this and hopefully inspire SQL DBAs to explore PowerShell further by showing how easy it is to explore SQL Server properties with it.
