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 November Meetup - SQL Tips & Tricks with Terry McCann

  • In-Person @ The Stoke Pub & Pizzeria Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom (map)
  • 19:00 - 22:00 UTC
  • 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.

Session takes place in a curtained-off area within the main Stoke pub. 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!

Featured Presentation:

TSQLL – Tricky SQL, Quandaries and Lessons Learnt

Terry McCann, Principal Consultant Advancing Analytics

In this session we will take a few tricky questions asked by users from ASKSSC, a SQL Server forum, and look at how we might go about solving them. Along the way we will look at analytical functions, Cartesian products, cross apply and tally tables to name a few. TSQL was voted best programming language in 2013, let’s explore why!
