We had the best of the best speakers presenting all the five sessions. The event was inaugurated by Vinod Kumar M by presenting on T-SQL Pitfalls. His excellent and eye-opening session was followed by Manas Dash. Manas presented fantastic funny session on Functions. He enlightened everybody with functions introduced in SQL Server 2012. We had a surprise guest from Mumbai – Raj Chaodhary. If you know him he has a very interesting way to present sessions and he presented on SQL Joins. His hard to follow act was followed by Sudeepta who presented on Contained Database. This subject is quite entertaining and interesting. My session was last in order and I was eagerly waiting to present.

I had decided to do something new this time so I had created around 52 slides and two demos. I was committed to go over all the 52 slides and both of the demos in 25 minutes of the time. I had interesting story as well. Though, I was a bit nervous I was able to go over a complete slide deck and demo in 25 minutes of the time I had.

We also were very fortunate to have international guest Lynn Langit from USA present at the event as well. She presented an overview of the Big Data in very little time – something not everyone can do it efficiently.

  • @Pinal,

    If I have to move to India, It will be either Hyderabad (because its my birth place) or it will Bangalore (because some genius people stay there are doing some really good work for SQL Server Community). I am sure everyone enjoyed these sessions (I hate to miss these sessions :( ).

    Great post, Sir !
    However, you forgot about “BOL BACHCHAN” by Manas, his session was before mine. The session was on “Top 5 Built-in Functions in SQL Server 2012”.
