Let the good times roll and your troubles float away in the EPM Cloud Lounge on Monday night. Grab a drink while networking with friends, old and new.

Everyone will be there!
BI Texas-Style Trivia – Grand Oaks H
Time to get out the funny hats and try some trivia with a Texas flare! The BI Community is spicing it up on Monday Night and who knows what you might find? Longhorns doing long division? Cowboys chuckling about Copernicus? This quirky event is a Kscope must-do. So, two-step on over to grab a beer, win some prizes, and put your knowledge to the test at BI Trivia Night! 

APEX Open Mic Night Sponsored by: logo-insum.png – Cibolo Canyon 5
APEX Open Mic Night is one of the highlights of Kscope for the APEX community. It gives the opportunity for attendees to showcase some of the cool features and applications they’ve built using APEX. For those that want to present, simply show up a few minutes early and sign-up on the sheet provided. Each informal presentation is five minutes long (no slides) followed by a few minutes of Q&A from the audience.

Database Community Lightning Talks & Variety Hour Sponsored by: Quest.jpg– Cibolo Canyon 2/3/4
Have you ever dreamed of an entertaining venue where you might also learn more about Database? You are in luck! On Monday Night come to Database Community Night where you might find a fellow ODTUGer delivering DB tips and tricks at the speed of sound or possibly standing on her head while whistling Dixie! Bring your best stories and most bizarre talents. If you are worried that Tim Gorman might play the spoons for 90 minutes or more, fear not! Mike Riley will be armed with a gong to avoid just that awkward moment. See you there!

 Why Join ODTUG?
Throughout the month of April, the 2017 ODTUG Leadership Class asked members from the ODTUG community to share reasons why they joined ODTUG. They received lots of feedback and found a few recurring themes among the answers; the people, content, networking, educational opportunities, professional development, industry support, and of course – Kscope. Learn more about what our members had to say, and don’t forget to watch Natalie Delemar and Debra Lilley’s recorded webinar session on The Importance of User Groups.
