New Location for Sydney SQL Server Enterprise User Group

Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts

Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of our control we are no longer able to use the Westpac Place for the Sydney SQL Server Enterprise User Group.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank very much all the personnel at Westpac / BT Financial Group that were involved in “sponsoring”, managing and helping run the event. In particular Adam, Erwin and Gabriel.

The user group will be moving to the following location:

Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts
280 Pitt Street
Sydney NSW 2000

Map and Directions

(This is the same location that the evening user group runs at.)

The user group will still continue to run at the same time, from 12:00 till 14:00.

The meetings of this new user group will continue to rotate through 3 core tracks:

 

    • Database Administrator (DBA)
      • Focuses on the responsibilities of the Database Administrator, covering areas such as disaster recovery, management, performance tuning, security and operational excellence.
    • Database Developer (DBD)
      • Focuses on the responsibilities of the Database Developer, covering areas such as query writing, query tuning, indexing strategies, locking architecture and database design.
    • Database Architect (ARC)
      • Focuses on the responsibilities of the Database Architect, covering areas such as high-availability, storage, consolidation / virtualization and scalability.
