It was a great day today as at a SQL Bangalore User Group we had an event “Women in SQL” day. This event was one of the milestone event as in India there was no UG in my knowledge had done an event where we appreciated “Women Power”. We had a very strong line up of the speakers and around 100+ people were there to appreciate the knowledge and presentation.
SQL Bangalore is the most active SQL User Group in Bangalore and we have a vibrant and active community here. Here is the Facebook page where we are extremely active and here is the official website. Here was the agenda of the event. A big thank you to Pluralsight for offering USD 500 worth annual plus subscription to one of the winners of the event.
- Introduction to SSDT by Deepthi Anantharam – Microsoft
- Usage of SQL Server 2012 express LocalDB by Chaitra Nagaraj – MVP ASP.NET
- Working with SQL Server Maintenance Plans by Prabhjot and Shraddha – Microsoft
- Migrating from Reporting Services 2008 to 2012 by Jaishree Karira (Independent Consultant)
One of the surprise element which organizers were discussing ways to bring in the younger SQL Speaker to the stage and deliver some wisdom. We looked around and finally found a speaker who can talk a bit about SQL Server. The speaker we found was only 3 years and 7 months old and she was familiar with big data, SQL Server and basic syntax of the SQL Server. She also owns SQL Queries Books and learns SQL from Pluralsight. If you have not yet figured out by my narration she is my daughter – Shaivi Dave.
It was indeed a matter of a proud for me as my own daughter was standing with me on stage and talking brief words on SQL Server in front of 100+ technology enthusiast with confidence. It was her debut stage appearance and I believe there will be many more in future. At this young age she likes to do everything what a young kid like to do but have a deep interest in SQL and Big Data. Here is a quick video which we had recorded during last month.
Here are few of the photographs of the event.
