If thereâ€™s one thing that really stands out about SQL Server, itâ€™s the fantastic social community behind the product. If you keep an eye out on SQL blogs and Twitter networks, you can see events running every week across the US and the UK. Australia also has quite a strong SQL Server community, with the Melbourne SQL Server user group exceptionally popular. Although 30 minutes is set aside for socialising, I feel itâ€™s just not enough â€“ Iâ€™m such a social butterfly, you see.
To that end, Luke Hayler (@lukehayler)and I have organised an evening of social drinks. Come along, meet some other SQL Server professionals based in Melbourne, and discuss anything you like: SQL Server, virtualisation, your dog, or just wax lyrical about the quality of the beer available.

Thatâ€™s my kind of database cluster!
