Welcome to the Leicester SQL Server User Group, home to the East Midlands PASS Chapter.
We meet three times a year, in February, June, and October. Our meetings generally consist of two sessions with a break in the middle, and a swift half at the Barley Mow afterwards.
Our venue is the Percy Barrett room at the YMCA on East Street in Leicester, obliquely opposite the train station.
The usual timetable is as follows:
|6:15 - 6:30||Welcome, Announcements, Discussion|
|6:30 - 7:30||Session 1|
|7:30 - 7:45||Samosas|
|7:45 - 8:45||Session 2|
|8:45 - ||Pub|
If you want to speak at an event, or have any other question, you can get in touch through the contact form on this site.
In addition to support from Microsoft and PASS, we have great giveaways from Pluralsight - Hardcore Developer and IT Training and O'Reilly Media at every event - you'll need to register and come along to find out more about these!
