About Us


Our inaugural presentation was October 20, 2010. Since then, we've had a variety of SQL Server and PowerShell experts show how SQL Server and PowerShell can work together to save you time. Check out our meeting archive for great talks about SQL Server performance monitoring, auditing, migrations, health checks, and more.
