Our first presentation was given by Ryan Botha[L] a first time speaker but long time attendee of the user group. Ryan gave a great presentation on how he and his colleagues used XML to move data between the database and other systems such as CRM systems. He did a great job and we hope to hear more from him in the future.
Next up was Stephan Lawson [B|T|L] giving what may be his last presentation to our user group as he will soon be moving to the UK, he will be missed! Stephan gave a hugely informative talk of what we could expect to come out in the yet-to-be-announced release of SQL 2014
To help us grow the communities Pluralsight have very kindly sponsored us a number of vouchers to give to our members as prizes. This month we gave away 3 vouchers to attendees as a reward for both registering on the site as well as asking the best questions from our speakers.
The next meeting will be on 11 March 2014 and we look forward to seeing you there.
