SQL Fargo

SQL PASS Fargo is a group of area SQL professionals that want to exchange knowledge, tools, scripts, tips, and performance enhancements for Microsoft SQL Server.  We are open to all levels of database knowledge - from the uninitiated to the advanced database administrator.

Please check the schedule below for our announcements on our monthly meetings.

Meetings occur on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Fargo Public Library in the Fercho room.  From 7pm to 8pm, there will be a formal topic or presentation, but feel free to come early or stay late and chat with the other participants.
