About Us

Who We Are

The Calgary SQL PASS User Group is a local association that organizes events and activities to provide SQL Server professionals with cutting-edge information about SQL Server technologies.

The user group is run by volunteers and was formed in late 2008. Our membership includes database administrators, database developers, database architects and database managers working with SQL Server technologies.

Membership and attendance of events is completely free. A typical event will draw approximately 15-40 members.
