Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server Users Group! We represent the SQL Server community in Louisville, the surrounding metropolitan area, and throughout most of Kentucky. As a technical users group, we focus on monthly meetings, but also provide networking, learning opportunities, speaking opportunities, training, and collaboration for SQL Server professionals throughout the Ohio Valley area. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, either at lunchtime in the downtown Louisville area or in the evening outside downtown. This alternating approach to meeting times and locations allows us to support as many of our users as possible and provides different venue and time options for our meetings and our attendees. We also partner with various volunteer groups to bring special events to the area, such as SQL Saturdays. Those events typically draw large crowds of SQL Server professionals from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and beyond!

Vote or Die 2016: Which is Faster?

Join us on Thursday, September 15th for the next meeting of the Louisville SQL Server and Power BI Users Group! We will meet at the TEK Systems office at 700 Hurstbourne Parkway, Louisville KY 40223. Meeting information is as follows:

Topic:  Vote or Die 2016: Which is Faster?

Description:  Ever wondered what's faster between a bulk insert and BCP? What about powershell vs SSIS? This session will review multiple topics of SQL Server that include development, ETL, and administration. In the spirit of the election season, this session will feature having the ability to debate and vote on which of each technology you think we will be best, and if your "candidate" wins, your votes will be entered into a drawing; so the more votes you win the more chances you get!
