About BRSSUG

The Baton Rouge SQL Server User Group (BRSSUG.org) is a free, no-registration required user group for professionals and students in the broad field of Microsoft SQL Server. The group aims provide a platform for growing your skillset in Information Technology and your professional network, and work closely with local and regional partners to make our monthly meetings interesting and informative. Meetings are held monthly in conjunction with the Baton Rouge .net User Group (BRDNUG.org), the Baton Rouge IT Pro User Group (BRITUG.org) and Baton Rouge SharePoint User Group (BRSPUG.com) at the Louisiana Tech Park (LATECHPARK.com).

We meet every second Wednesday of the month on a wide range of topics from Business Intelligence, Disaster Recovery, SQL Server performance and monitoring, and SQL server development.

The goal is to help the Baton Rouge area SQL community become more involved, educated, and capable technology professionals. To join our mailing list, please click here.

If you have any questions about the group please drop us a line. If you're interested in speaking we're especially interested to hear from you. Please contact us at sqlpassbr@gmail.com.
