The SQL Server CommunityThe SQL Server Community

At Purple Frog, we firmly believe that Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing and indeed all database/SQL Server technology and knowledge should be shared. One of the best way of learning new skills is by networking with other like minded people and seeing demonstrations of how the technology can be used.

We are proud to be a part of the SQL Server community, and welcome any opportunity to help those just starting out or wanting to expand their skills. We're actively involved in the community in a number of ways, including writing our Business Intelligence blog, and presenting at user groups and conferences. We've even set up a Midlands SQL Server user group for those of us based near Birmingham.

Most of these talks and events are free to attend and are open to the general public, find out more by clicking on the links.

If you'd like us to do a business intelligence talk or workshop, please get in touch. We also have an extensive network of world renowned speakers that we can call upon who cover the whole SQL Server suite.
