The more you learn, the more you earn!

“The more you Learn, The more you earn” – quote by Frank Clark, always inspires me to strive for new learning and implement those learning into my routine life irrespective of personal or professional. Being a decade old SQL Server professional, experienced a wide spectrum of SQL Server versions from 2000 to 2016 (Wow! 7 different versions. Kicked off experiencing & sharing SQL 20161, 2, 3).  Every other version launching of SQL Server strikes to my mind – how to learn, from where to get best updates, who is going to help identifying best solutions, utility & features. This was just not to help me continuing pay checks and enjoy little luxury, however I would get more “earning” in terms of respect in organization, SQL server community & among SQL Server professional with whom I’m directly or indirectly associated.

Aug-2015 was a milestone of my professional career. I’d participated in Asia’s first SQL Server Conference happened in Bangalore. Not just as participant, I contributed in conference as core member and the kind of learning I’d, going to remain with me forever. This conference gave me lot of visibility in my organization & professional circle. Not because of pictures I posted/tagged on social networking sites, simply because the kind of learning I “earned” over period of few days at conference from Microsoft Data Platform Program managers, Premier field engineers, SQL Server Stalwarts & great industry leaders. Felt like a dream come true to sit in wonderful in-person sessions and carry tons & tons of information which google couldn’t deliver after several years of surfing. I “earned” a lot of confidence, “earned” new friends, “earned” ability to contact to those great icons in field of Microsoft SQL Server.



I “earned” a lot from SQL Server conference, and now those earnings are paying me off well in terms of monitory/professional growth, respect, visibility & confidence. I experienced closely myself moving from a classic SQL Server Technologist to an epicenter of SQL Server Technology with my current organization.


PS –

Convinced enough, moving forward any such conference happens in India I would be one to join those to horn my skill sets and to continue my journey of “more learning & more earning”. Wow! SSG community has announced SQL Server Summit 2016 happening in Aug-2016 and I’ve registered myself and strongly recommend to nears & dears associated with SQL Server some or other way.

Happy Learning!
