SQLAuthority News – SQL Data Camp, Chennai, July 17, 2010 – A Huge Success

I had great pleasure to attend very first SQL Data Camp at Chennai on July 17, 2010. This event was very unique as this was very first one-day SQL Event in whole Indian Subcontinent. The event was blast as there were so many back–to-back SQL Sessions with SQL Server MVPs. I was fortunate to present two different sessions at the SQL Data Camp in Chennai.

I must express my special thanks to event organizers Sugesh, Deepak and Vidyasagar for organizing such a wonderful event. Every participant who was attending the event had a great time and expressed their passion for SQL Server as well as the overall technology. I also enjoyed meeting SQL Server MVPs Madhivanan, Madhu and Venketasan.

The event was very well organized and the enthusiasm of the crowd was unmatched. After the event, I talked with nearly 30 different attendees on a one-to-one basis and was glad to know their desires to involve with the community activities and to learn advanced topics in SQL Server.

Spatial Database & Spatial Indexing

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 delivers new spatial data types that enable you to consume, use, and extend location-based data through spatial-enabled applications. This session helps us to learn how to use spatial functionality in the next version of SQL Server to build and optimize spatial queries. This session also outlines the new geography data type to store geodetic spatial data and perform operations on it, and use the new geometry data type to store planar spatial data and perform operations on it.

Good, Bad & Ugly – The other side of Index

Index is often considered as the sure shot tool of improving the performance of any query. You can learn the secrets of Indexing with examples and discover the good, bad and ugly sides of Index. This session will help you write queries efficiently in future and also make you go back and defector your earlier code.

Pinal giving away books

We distributed T-Shirts to all the participants. The most active participant received Redgate books written by renowned industry experts and MVPs. Once again, many thanks to all the organizers and SQL Server MVPs for arranging such a wonderful event for the entire SQL Server Community!
