Having recently gone past our 5th birthday, we have decided to make some changes for 2019. Myself and Mike (t) have been extremely busy this year and perhaps not dedicated as much time to SQLNorthEast as we would have liked and have therefore made a decision to bring in additional help with the organising so I would like to announce two new additions to the committee in Glen Leck (t)and Mark Steinberg (t) – I hope they know what they’re letting themselves in for 😉
We are also in the process of re-branding the Usergroup from SQLNorthEast to Newcastle DPaC (Data Platform and Cloud) as we are not just SQL Server and cover most if not all areas of Microsoft’s Data Platform. The PASS website and associated details have also been amended and we have also setup a new Meetup which will be where our communications will be done from now on. Twitter has also been updated so please now use the handle @DPaCNewc.
Feel free to join our Newcastle DPaC slack workspace.
Our next meetup will be on Tuesday November 27th with Craig Porteous (b|t) and Paul Broadwith (b|t)talking Git Fundamentals & PowerShell Standards Agency. Both sessions are fantastic and definitely not one to be missed!!
