I presented there on two different subject. They were very enthusiastic and had so many interesting questions during the session. One of my session received rating of 8.9. I must thank you to all the attendees for sending their feedback and appreciating my session. Both of my session have received feedback above average.

The Other Side of SQL Server Index : Advanced Solutions to Ancient Problem (Rating 8.9)
SQL Server Index is very powerful tool and when in hand of the less skilled expert, the same tool can be very dangerous for performance and can kill server. This session touches the root base of the how incorrect usage of Index can reduce performance and what is the correct way to implement indexing solution. A problem addressed in the session may be age old but the solutions are looked into with the focus of latest versions of SQL Server.

The history of the Log: Change Data Capture (CDC) (Rating 7.8)
Learn to capture the history of data using CDC. An age old method of writing queries and triggers to capture change in database table is replaced with much powerful asynchronous method of change data capture (CDC). All attendees will learn how to configure CDC in less than 60 seconds.

    Great.. Congrats. Do you have to be Microsoft Evangelist to present topics in TechEd?

    • Hi Shailesh,

      You do not have to talk about technology passionately. I am just passionate for SQL Server, I am not MS Evangelist (MS employee – just to be clear).

      Kind Regards,

        Anybody can present the topic Tech-Ed? I am wondering that you might have to submit the topic that you are interested to present and MS will short it out based on technical and presentation skills? Is that true?

  • Hey Pinal,

    Can you possibly share your your presentations? Was it recorded? Do you have any PPTs? It’d be most appreciated.

  • Hi Pinal,
