Hi SQL Server Geeks,

This year, we kick started SQL Server Day events with great enthusiasm and aggressiveness planning events in Bangalore, Mumbai, Gurgaon & Kolkata.

The first one was in Bangalore on 17 March 2012 at Microsoft campus. We blogged about it here

The second one was in Kolkata and Kolkata experience is always so different. The Microsoft facility in Kolkata, where the event was held, can only accommodate 30 attendees, and as expected, the classroom was full. We are so used to 100+ crowd that suddenly the small setup was becoming a different experience.

To begin with, the attendees were knowledgeable on SQL and had good experience. This was something that our speakers really liked including me, as we were able to have matured discussions with the audience. Sessions were presented by Abhishek Sur (MVP) and Amit Bansal (www.amitbansal.net). Abhishek presented on developer enhancements in SQL Server 2012 and Amit presented on SQL Server wait stats. Having only 30 attendees in a classroom format, as opposed to 100+ in seminar halls, things worked in our favor as the speakers were able to one-to-one discussions on many occasions; kind of a closed group talk – in a way, it was more effective.

The attendees enjoyed the event thoroughly and had an excellent time networking with the speakers and amongst themselves. All in all, a great learning experience for the SQL community, another successful event from us.

If you want us to organize SQL Server Day event for your company at your premises, you can write to us at admin<at>SQLServerGeeks<dot>com. We will be glad to setup a world-class event with eminent speakers in your premises.
