Iowa SQL Server User Group

Welcome to the Iowa SQL Server User Group (IASSUG)!

IASSUG is a Chapter/Local Group located in Des Moines, IA, in partnership with the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS).  We hold monthly group meetings usually on the third Thursday of the calendar month.

Since 2014, we are proud to have helped I-380 PASS and QCPASS (Quad Cities) with annual event planning and on-site staff duties at SQLSaturday Iowa City.

Want to join our local group?  Please check out our group Des Moines SQL Users Group.  Meeting events will be posted on that site as well as here, with any changes or added details updated at the Meetup group.

Learn tips and tricks from the professionals.  No sales pitch, just a bunch of Data Huggers getting together to learn something new!
