Bedford, NH -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/28/2010 -- Portsmouth, NH-based Seacoast SQL Users Group and Bedford, NH-based Alexander Technology Group have successfully partnered to deliver a unique opportunity to New Hampshire’s tech community. Seacoast SQL Users Group is a non-profit, educational group offering credible speakers and valuable expertise centered around the use of Microsoft SQL Server for business intelligence and database administration/development purposes. April 13th marked the launch event attracting over 60 attendees and featuring speakers from Attunity, Inc., FM Global, and Microsoft. The event was also provided in partnership with Great Bay Community College who provided the facilities to house the event.
“I was very pleased with both the attendance and participation of our audience. The turnout for our first meeting shows that there is a thirst for SQL Server knowledge in the area and I am proud to be part of sharing of that knowledge with the community” said Mike Walsh, President of Seacoast SQL Server Users Group and Owner of StraightPath Solutions. “It is very exciting that we are able to bring talented individuals to the Seacoast and provide a local venue for colleagues and professionals from surrounding areas. This group represents a great opportunity for the attendees to network with other professionals, enhance their technical skills and contribute by participating and even presenting at future meetings” said Melissa Field, Vice President of the Seacoast SQL Users Group and Technical Lead at Newmarket International in Portsmouth. Many of the local tech industry’s top employers were represented illustrating the necessity for the group.
Alexander Technology Group is the founding partner of Seacoast SQL Users Group and provides technology consulting and recruiting services specifically to NH and northern MA clientele. “We take great pride in the investment of time and resources to increase educational and networking opportunities for our clients and partner career seekers” said Jason Alexander, Principal and Co-Founder of Alexander Technology Group. “Considering the reputation of the group’s founders as well as the powerful results we intend to deliver, involving ourselves as a founding partner was an easy decision. Demand for multi-dimensional SQL Server expertise is skyrocketing making the impact from a niche-specific group like this quite significant.”
