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.
