The Access User Group of San Diego exists to encourage the use and understanding of the Windows database platform Microsoft Access. We are pledged to encourage high development standards and adherence to professional ethics. The group's monthly meetings also provide an opportunity for members to network and informally discuss design tactics. We recognize that users span from "End-Users" at one extreme, who wish to be a buffered from technical know-how as much as possible, through analysts who need to build their own queries to get the results they need all the way to advanced developers who design and build complete information systems. We seek to support all users in our meetings. Meeting topics include focused tutorials, case studies, open discussions, vendor demonstrations, general announcements, and member introductions.
Started in November 1994 by Angela Good and Bill Krutz, the Access User Group of San Diego (AUGSD) was created to promote interest and share knowledge and resources regarding Microsoft Access. The group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The first portion of each meeting is dedicated to beginner / intermediate level user questions and presentations. After a short break the second portion of the meeting is devoted to more advanced questions and presentations. Past presentations and the planned future presentations can be seen on our Schedule page.
Meetings offer opportunities for members to meet with other enthusiastic Access users as well as to make announcements if looking for or offering work.
