7th Position as an Expert of the year in Experts-Exchange.com

I am actively running my blog SQLHub.com from March-2009 and have started participated actively in Experts-Exchnage.com from the April-2009.  From the month of May 2009 I was in the list of top 5 experts in few zones like SQL Server, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 etc. Finally today experts of the year list came out from Experts-Exchange official and I am really very glad to see my name in the TOP-10 Expert of year.
Since last two months I am really very busy with heavy work load but this name in TOP-10 list encouraged me enough to participate more with community and reach to more and more people. I have learned lot of things from community so I consider it my duty to helping more and more people.
Thanks to everybody who always encouraged me in my mission especially Mr. Pinal Dave who never let myself stop helping people. He is real source of encouragement and inspiration.

Microsoft Community Tech Day in Ahmedabad on 3rd OCT 2009

3rd October 2009 was really a great day in the history of Ahmedabad for Microsoft technology.  I am really impressed with all speakers whose session I have attended. There was a great warm up appetizer session with superb energy by Mr. Vinod Kumar.  I enjoyed a lot in his Windows 7 and Office 2010 session. Wanted to have more about SQL Server from Vinod Kumar but Time was a big constraint.

Vinod Kumar’s session was followed up by one of the very well known speaker Mr. Pinal Dave.  As always expected, he delivered his session with full energy, joy and knowledge. He really a rock star in the field of SQL Server. Index is really a common term in the world of SQL Server but with his long experience with SQL Server, he share great tips & tricks to handle Index, everybody really enjoyed it. Along with traditional Index and its issues, he explained Filtered Index very deeply which was really new to many people out there. Nobody was feeling drowsy even in after noon, even after having good lunch as Pinal’s session was more interesting than sleeping (though I love to sleep anytime, especially after having good lunch).

Now it was a turn of Jacob Sebastian. I am already impressed with this International Speaker out here in Ahmedabad with all of us. His simplicity, his great sense of humor and top of that his smile makes every difficult session and topic, very easy. He used to deliver his depth knowledgeable session with really ease. I am really thankful to this technology hero to make aware everybody out there with defensive techniques of SQL Server programming. I myself felt so many times that SQL Server has much more potential, much more capacity to handle set based difficult question but it is really underused. Thanks to Jacob once again to make everybody aware with few tips and tricks.

As long as Arrangement concern, It was superb.   Big conference hall for seminar, three projectors with big display, having capacity around 250+ but when response was overwhelm, management was powerful enough to immediately accommodate more attendees. Lunch and snacks was also enjoyable, especially “Gulab Jamun”. I love this sweet a lot.
