Welcome to the SQLSurrey PASS Chapter

We are SQLSurrey, the SQL Server Usergroup based in Guildford and surrounding areas. We're a group of SQL enthusiasts from the area who specialise in the MSBI & Azure side of things, but we'll be hosting a range talks across the whole SQL spectrum.

We're hoping to build up a community of like-minded peers to share knowledge, sharpen skills and enjoy a few beers. It's pretty important to us that these aren't lectures - we'll be occupying the back room of a pub and keeping things informal as best we can!

Next Meeting




SQLSurrey August Meetup - SQL 2016 Features for the BI Professional

  • In-Person @ The Stoke Pub & Pizzeria Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom (map)
  • 19:00 - 22:00 GMT Daylight Time
  • Language: English

We'll be following the usual agenda - a quick update about the group, general announcements and PASS news. Followed by an hour's talk by our guest speaker.

As usual, we'll be hanging around afterwards for drinks & pizza (on us!) and sharing opinions / thoughts on the topic of the talk and general industry activity!

Would be great to see you there, and, as always, get in touch if you'd like to speak at an upcoming event!
