User Group Update

Hello and welcome to the new site! We ran into some scheduling issues for the past several months and are back on track with a more consistent date and time slot that appears to be looking good for the longer term. That doesn’t mean SQL Server user group related activity has been quiet in NH or the region! A few notes about upcoming events and news in the area:

Next Month

  • Our May meeting (you can see it on the calendar on the home page here) will be a presentation from Don O’Neil of Trip Advisor and myself talking about some of the interesting things we are doing over there with Hadoop, Big Data, SQL Server and SSAS.
  • May 19th – There will be a SQL Saturday at the Microsoft Complex in May. The organizers are still working on the event schedule, I’ll expect they’ll have it out in the coming weeks at the event site.
  • Adam Machanic will be back to join us in Portsmouth again. We’ll have his topic ironed out over the next couple weeks but I expect it to be some more great info for developers and DBAs alike. I’d like to see him go into some advanced tuning or memory grant talks but we’ll see 🙂
Summer Schedule
We aren’t sure if we’ll be meeting each month of the summer or not but we are talking about planning either a summer BBQ gathering for the User Group for a networking and socialization time or a holiday party (or both, depending on funding!) More on this in the coming meetings as we gauge interest.
The leadership of this User Group along with David Taylor, a local SQL Server expert and active PASS volunteer, and Alexander Technology Group have secured a space for a first ever NH SQL Saturday event!!! The site isn’t live yet, but once PASS puts it on the main site, we’ll be sure to send a link. For now, though – Save the date! Saturday October 20, 2012. It will be at Rivier College in Nashua. This is a great time for getting conference level sessions for free. All costs will be covered by sponsors, including lunch and snacks. We’ll be looking for volunteers so be sure to let us know at the next meeting or send us an e-mail at
