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 February Meetup - Problem solving with U-SQL Code Dojo!

  • In-Person @ White House Pub Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom (map)
  • 19:00 - 22:00 (UTC+00:00) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London
  • Language: English

This month we will be hosting another exciting Code Dojo!

To follow on from one of our presentations in our January meetup on Azure Data Factory V2, we are tackling another key Azure tool - Azure Data Lake Analytics. Whether you are an experienced U-SQL-Wrangler, or brand new to the language and looking to learn what it is all about, then come along and get involved!

--What is a Code Dojo?--

Dojos are collaborative challenges, designed to keep your coding skills sharp, bringing you out of your comfort zone. All challenges can be solved in U-SQL, usually via many different methods.

We'll read through a problem, split into groups to tackle it then talk through the various approaches people used. Then pick a new problem and repeat.

What do I need?

We should have a few laptops for the night, but you can write U-SQL directly in the browser, so bring along a laptop or even use your phone!

Other than that, just bring along your razor sharp problem solving skills and start on your way to being a U-SQL Ninja!

We will be upstairs at the White House, just to the right of the main entrance.
