Welcome to Southampton Data Platform User Group!

Our meetings are hosted at 3 Venture Road, Southampton Science Park near Chilworth.  

Our events are published on Meetup

If you're planning on attending one of our events, please register in advance so we know how much pizza to order.

We look forward to seeing you
