Northern Virginia SQL Server Users Group

The Northern Virginia SQL Server Users Group was started in early 2005 by members of the Microsoft SQL Server community who were interested in sharing experiences and disseminating knowledge to other members in the Northern VA/DC/Central MD area. NOVASQL is also a chapter of the Professional Association of SQL Server (, an international Microsoft SQL Server training and advocacy organization (membership is free).  As data platform roles and responsibilities have evolved, we have broadened our scope to include Microsoft Azure Advanced Analytics, Big Data, and general Azure topics.  The goal of the leadership of NOVASQL is to provide a comfortable environment where members can participate in multi-disciplinary discussions of Microsoft data platform related issues.

Benefits to NOVASQL Attendees include:

• We host at least two full-day technology conferences a year (e.g., Global Azure Bootcamp, Azure DataFest)  ◾Networking with local data platform professionals  ◾The latest and greatest Microsoft SQL Server news ◾Microsoft SQL Server and Azure Advanced Analytics and Big Data questions answered by Microsoft insiders ◾Valuable information for career development ◾Free food, drinks, and giveaways
