We are a book club that reads a book about SQL or a related data technology. We read from the same book over the course of several months. We meet each month to discuss what we have read.
We have lots of books to read, and we'll never run out of topics! We want to read books on SSIS, SSRS, SSAS, Power View, PowerPivot, Disaster Recovery, Scaling, Entity Framework, Excel, Performance Tuning, and lots of T-SQL. I want to read books by Kalen Delaney, Ben Nevarez, Brian Knight, Teo Lachev, Paul Randall, Itzik Ben-Gan, Brent Ozar, Brian Larson and more! We'd like to learn about Postgres,Hadoop, MongoDB, Cassandra, SQL Azure, and a ton of other stuff.
