Hi Friends,

It is an indeed an honor and privilege to be speaking at TechED North America, Microsoft’s largest technical event; and I will be celebrating 20 years of Microsoft TechED along with many others! Special thanks to the almighty, my parents & family, friends, SQL community J and of course, the selectors for selecting me. I am presenting on Indexes again; session title being; “Back to Indexes, the original culprit”. In case you are attending TechED NA, do drop by to say HI ! And I will be glad if you attend my session on Thursday at 1.00 pm.

I will be also available at the Technical Learning Center / SQL Demo stations at these timings:

Monday, June 11: 12.00 to 2 pm & 7.30 pm to 9 pm
Tuesday, June 12: 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm
Wednesday, June 13: 10.30 am to 1.00 pm & 3.00 pm to 5 pm

Do drop by and say HI. I am looking forward to meet many of the readers and audience of SQLServerGeeks.com


This is turning out to be a year of international conferences and international travel.

In March this year, I delivered a similar session at SQLBits in London. I blogged about it here And here;

In April, I delivered 2 session at GIDS – Great Indian Developer Summit. I blogged about it here;

Previous to the above two evnts, I attended the MVP Summit in Feb End & SQL BareMetal workshop in Jan end – all trips proving so fruitful from learning perspective. I blogged about the baremetal workshop here;

I am yet to blog on the MVP Summit 2012 :(

More important than speaking is yet another opportunity to meet the vibrant SQL community coming from all over the world. I am told that the event is sold out and we expect more than 8000 geeks at the Orlando Convention Center. I love meeting the community, attendees, MVPs, MCMs, and SQL product team members – immense networking & learning opportunity!

I thank the TechED NA committee for selecting my session and giving me an opportunity to speak.
