We Are Passionate

about data and how Microsoft technologies like SQL Server, Power BI and Azure help you store, transform and get insights into your data.

Our Goal

is to share experiences, enthusiasm and knowledge about Microsoft SQL Server and the Microsoft Data Platform in general.

The User Group

was founded in 2006 as SQLUG.BE (Belgian SQL Server User Group). In 2016 we changed our name to dataMinds because today the Microsoft Data Platform is much broader than just SQL Server. Today dataMinds is a community of over 1800 members. More than 300 SQL Server enthusiasts attend the yearly dataMinds Connect conference.

As of 2016 we applied ourselves to build out a strong community around Power BI in Belgium. Dedicated to host specific evenings for Power BI, and it's unique audience, we've enjoyed every minute while doing so!

We are the Belgian Power BI User Group (PUG) connecting local users with interests in Power BI, Data Analytics, AI, SQL, and [others] to network and learn.
