There are many free groups & resources you can take advantage of to learn different technologies. Here are a few of our favorites
Access Web Apps Users Group: Run by Andy Tabisz, each month we discuss different features of Microsoft Access Web Apps, including user interface, tables, list and datasheet views, macros and data macros, versioning and implementation. We meet online the 3rd Tuesday of every month.
Access / SQL Users Group: Run by Juan Soto, this group discusses using Microsoft Access as the “front end” user interface to SQL “back end” data tables.
LinkedIn has several Access, SQL, SharePoint and other groups.

SQL Saturdays and SharePoint Saturdays are free events held around the country (and the world!). These one-day conferences are in-person and have dozens of expert speakers, concurrent sessions (meaning you can choose whatever sessions you are interested in) and often give t-shirts, free software and other “swag” to take home with you.
