Adelaide SQL Server User Group


Welcome to the Adelaide PASS group - covering SQL Server and every aspect of the Microsoft Data Platform and Data Analytics space. You can find us on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Microsoft offices, Level 12, 147 Pirie St.

There's a link below to get on the mailing list. This is a mailchimp list, rather than the one that PASS handles.

We use EventBrite for meeting registrations - please look at for a list of our meetings.

Many years ago, we used, and you can see an archive of events on that site - but the Adelaide mailing list from there hasn't been used for some time.

Now, a quick word about privacy...

The details of event registrations are held with EventBrite, and I use that to update my EventBrite contacts, which is then used to update a mailchimp list for sending emails about the group. If you ever want to be removed from either my EventBrite contact list or the mailchimp list, please just let me know (rob at I do this for you and will do my best to keep your privacy private.

Database as a Service (DBaaS)
You probably have an idea of Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas), and Platform as a Service (PaaS), but as database professionals, should we really be interested in Database as a Service? Charley Hanania will be visiting Adelaide and will explore this idea with us, so come along for an interactive session.

Speaker: Charley Hanania
Charley is Principal Consultant at QS2 AG, and has consulted to many organisations internationally. He’s been focussed on SQL since v4.2 on OS/2 & with over 20 years of experience in IT he’s supported companies in the areas of DB training, development, architecture & administration throughout Europe & Australasia. Communities are Charley's passion, & he became active in DB communities in the mid 90's and until today.
