SQLAuthority Author Visit – Ahmedabad SQL Server User Group Meeting – November 2008

Ahmedabad SQL Server User Group Meeting was organized on November 29, 2008 at famous C.G. Road in Ahmedabad. We had great response and wonderful back to back technical sessions. The highlight of whole meeting was participation of UG President Jacob Sebastian – SQL MVP from New York.

Meeting started with introduction and welcome to all the members from SQL Server MVP – Pinal Daveand followed by technical session of “SQL Server 2008 – Backup and Compression” by Pinal Dave. This session was very special because not every database user is aware of the special feature of SQL Server 2008 and how it can improve the life of SQL Administrator.

[Please leave a comment in this thread if you are interested in SQL script which I had used in this demo presentation.]

I am very much encouraged as a User Group Leader because one of the member of UG Tejas Shah presented his very first technical session today. Tejas Shah delivered excellent session of “Introduction to Service Broker”. It is very new subject and UG members liked it.

The most awaited session was presented by SQL Server MVP – Pinal Dave where he discussed How to become MVP?”. Pinal explained the advantages and responsibility of becoming MVP. There were many questions regarding this subject. I think UG members and SQL enthusiastic were really into learning how to become MVP. I did my best to answer all the questions which I had received. Community Service is the short answer of this subject.

Pinal Dave shared his experience of attending MVP Open Day 2008, Goa. There were nearly 15 brand new photographs of the Open Day. To know more about MVP Open Day 2008 please visit following article.

UG president Jacob who is New York participated in this meeting using GoToMeeting and discussed his experience of attending PASS conference. This was very special as this was first time when we had live presentation using Audio Video community tools.

Well last but not least, we had our ice creams. Ice Cream was from Havmore and flavor was ‘lonavali’. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Again, if you are interested in participating in UG meetings, please let me know. It is free and good networking with other tech developers.
