October SQL Fargo PASS Meeting!

Hello all!

It's been awhile since we had a sit-down meeting, so I figure it's time to do so. I'll be giving a shortened version of my presentation from SQL Sat Sioux Falls on SSMS version 17 and useful tips and tricks when working in SSMS. I guarantee you'll learn something new to help you with your productivity in SSMS!

Please RSVP if you are planning on attending - it takes just a few seconds:

Hope to see you all there!

Upcoming Events: If you have an interesting database related topic, please consider presenting it to the group! We're always looking for chapter meeting speakers!
