Hartford User Group – February 2017

I am enthusiastic about presenting to the Hartford SQL Server User Group on February 14, 2017.

Of course, I am looking forward to seeing my friends Todd Chittenden and John Flannery. However, I love to chat to local user groups about any SQL server topic that I am passionate about.

The meeting venue has changed since the last time I visited to the following:

Blum Shaprio
29 South Main Street,
Please Park in Town Center Garage
West Hartford, CT

Details about the presentation that was given are below.
