Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group

Welcome to the Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group

The Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group (JSSUG) was founded by Brian Knight in January 2003, creating a community for database developers and administrators in the Jacksonville area. The goal of JSSUG is to share knowledge, best practices, and network. Today, it is a community focusing on development, administration, and business intelligence. Free meetings are open to the public every month. Meetings include presentations, technology announcements, local job opportunities, and quick brainstorming/guidance for users experiencing difficulty. An after event for additional networking, shop talk, and users desiring more detailed guidance for specific challenges is available following the meeting.

Welcome

JSSUG Monthly Meeting - August 19, 2015

Monthly user group meeting

Featured Presentation:

M Query Basics for Power Query

Devin Knight, Training Director Pragmatic Works

Power Query is a powerful data transformation tool that allows for self-service data extraction all within a familiar toolset: Excel. While Power Query does have a user interface that allows for simple transformations to be applied, you may find some scenarios require you to go beyond what is provided in the UI and actually write your own code. M is the query language that powers the data transforms utilized by Power Query. This session will guide you through the basics of using the language and show you some real world applications on why you might need to write your own M.
