  • All manner of date calculations and comparisons

Hi Andrew - glad to hear you are able to come to your first user group meeting! These are held at the Microsoft Technology Center in a conference room that will have free wifi and power outlets. These topics are more of a presentation / lecture instead of a hands on lab so you do not need to bring any data sets to work with. @GregBaldini
