Instead of booking travel, and footing additional bills for hotel and meals, you can view more than 30 HD sessions from the comfort of your home or office. Or anywhere you can get online for that matter!

The SSWUG VC is virtual! Skip the airport lines, expensive hotels, and bad food. Join us in this virtual event and get straight to the good stuff!


You can re-watch all of our HD sessions on-demand for 45 days after the event, as well as download presentation slides to revisit key portions of information at your convenience.

Typical industry conferences can make it hard to access presenters about their subject matter. At the SSWUG VC, speakers will be involved in chat sessions during their presentations to quickly answer questions and discuss content in real-time.


Don’t forget that during the event we hold giveaways. We encourage you to interact at the VC like you would at an in-person event. You'll receive points for certain activities and at the end of the event those with the most points will be eligible to win a 4 GB Xbox 360! Winners will be notified within one week of the live event date via email.

The more you participate, the more points you earn! It’s that simple.


All full members of SSWUG.ORG will receive a discount on registration costs throughout the registration period, which is just one of the member benefits offered alongside SSWUG.ORG’s in-depth articles, podcasts and how-to videos on databases and database technologies.

Group registration discounts are also available to companies and organizations. To start the group registration process, download our form.


On October 2, 3 and 4, we'll be bringing you sessions, information, interactive Q&A and much more - all related directly to the technologies you want to learn about. Find out about the cloud and how it impacts your systems. Learn about options for deploying outstanding information systems. See what you need to know and understand when it comes to administration of your systems.

We'll be bringing you high quality, large format presentations. You'll have access to Microsoft MVPs, book authors, industry experts, bloggers and more. Learn from the best, about the things that matter most. We'll be working with SQL Server, SharePoint, the Cloud, Big Data, .Net and more. The sessions are presented with high-quality video that allows you to easily see the demonstrations, the presenter and their slides. You'll be able to interact with presenters in the live chat rooms, you'll have full access to the resources presented, and you'll even be able to re-watch sessions on-demand for 45 days after the event has completed.

You'll find great techniques, tips, ideas, lessons learned and planning information you can put to use immediately.
