Dear Friends,

When I completed my training assignment in last week of June in Gurgaon, I had committed that we shall be organizing a rocking SQL Server event in Gurgaon – since it was long due.

And the event happened, and it was rocking !! Not only because we delivered typical SQL Server sessions as we always do, but more so because this time we involved the 80+ audience in invigorating debate on “Whether Cloud Computing is a hype?”

The participants participated very actively and it was a debate to watch. The day started with an introduction to SQLSeverGeeks.com, followed by SarabPreet’s session on PowerShell. The audience loved the way Sarabpreet wrote Powershell scripts on the fly to answer their questions. I delivered a session on Database Unit Testing and I focused on T-SQL code testing, and as always, my session was boring :) – no I mean it !

After the sessions, I had the debate in mind and I sparked it off and was glad to receive a fabulous response from the audience. I , on behalf of SQLServerGeeks.com, thank all the attendees for their wonderful participation in the event !

The best of all was the vide that we recorded “I am a SQL Server Geek” – you can see it here;

Thanks to Sarabpreet Singh & Rishu Mehra for all their support.
