Welcome to the Winnipeg SQL Server User Group, a PASS Associated Organization!

We meet approximately monthly Fall through Spring at the St. Boniface library branch, 131 Provencher Boulevard (just over the Provencher Bridge).

We are always looking for the next topic to present - so if you want to try out an idea with a friendly group, please let us know.

Here are some ideas for topics that might help you think of something you can present.

  • Data warehousing - is it just a bigger data mart?
  • I love/hate Entity Framework
  • I could not live without these tools

  • Big data - so what?
  • How I implemented a fault tolerant, highly available database on the cheap (or not so cheap)
  • How to convince the network/server guys that you need more resources for your virtual machine
  • What I learned when I tried to restore a database and it didn't go well
  • Power Query saved me weeks!
