I will be presenting at both the Boulder SQL Server User Group and Denver SQL Server User Groups next week! I'm looking forward to doing my Change Data Capture (CDC) with SSIS talk at both groups. I've been doing this talk at SQLSaturdays across the country, but this will be the first time that I have done it in Colorado since April 2014 at SQLSaturday #297 in Colorado Springs.

For more details about the Boulder SQL Server User Group meeting on Wednesday, March 18th at 5:30pm and to RSVP, please visit their Meetup.com website.

For more details on the Denver SQL Server User Group meeting on Thursday, March 19th at 5:30pm, please visit denversql.org.

Looking forward to meeting all of you that can make it out to Boulder and/or Denver on Wednesday and/or Thursday next week!
