Welcome to the Columbus SQL Server Users Group


Our local meetings are free and open to all! We meet the second Thursday of every month. Our current meetings are being held at:


6100 Emerald Parkway

Dublin, OH

Important travel note: Due to all the construction around the I-270/33 interchange in Dublin, your best option for getting to the meeting is to take the Tuttle Crossing exit (15) and take Tuttle Crossing Blvd. west to Emerald Parkway, and turn right. IGS is about a mile on the right.

In an ongoing attempt to make the content presented useful to our members we start each meeting with a short introduction and Q&A session.  Unless noted in the meeting notes the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 - 6:20 - Networking & social time

6:20 - 6:30 - Welcome & Announcements

6:30 - 6:45 - Warm Up Presentation

6:45 - 7:45 - Main Presentation

7:45 - 8:00 - Meeting Wrap Up and Door Prizes

Upcoming Meeting

Our next meeting will be May 12th, 2016 featuring "An introduction to the magical world of BIML" presented by Jonathan Stewart!


Ever feel like you are just doing busy work while creating new SSIS packages?  Feel like you are doing the same thing over and over while changing the names to protect the innocent?  Ever wonder if there is a better way?  Well wonder no more.  Come learn about the magical world of BIML and how it can help transform your environment by increasing your productivity while reducing the possibility of errors.  Come with intrigue and leave with a fundamental understanding of BIML!
