Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server & Power BI Users Group!

Our group is generally made up of folks that hail from the Derby City and surrounding Ohio River Valley area, who all have a passion for Microsoft SQL Server and the technologies that surround it. 

We are a diverse group with skills ranging from "accidental DBA's" to senior administrators, seasoned developers to big data analysts and all of the other backgrounds that fall in between.

Do you love to learn? 

Do you love sharing what you know about the complex challenges of working with SQL Server?

Then come join us, and make yourself at home.
