I attended my very first SQL Server User Group meeting last night and it was awesome! I want to start by giving my friend Tim Radney a BIG thank you for telling me about the importance of attending these sessions!
I joined the Northern Virginia (NOVA) SQL User Group a few weeks ago and attended my very first session last night. The session was called, “Hands-On Lab- Migrating a SQL Server Database to a Microsoft Azure SQL Database” and it was an online lab.
It was held at the Microsoft office in Reston, VA and lasted roughly three hours from 6:30 pm to 9 pm.
I absolutely loved it! There was pizza, soda, a big bucket full of Halloween candy, and a raffle at the end.
It was a great experience and I will definitely attend more meetings! In fact, the next time NOVASQL Group is meeting is on Nov 2nd 2015 for a session called, “SQL Server 2016 Cool New Features” with Harsh Deep Singh Narula (a Microsoft PFE). If you’re in the area, come and join us! Sign up here.
My one regret was not taking any pictures! I’ll definitely take some next time! :)
