SQL Saturday #116: A first but definitely not the last

Last weekend we successfully concluded SQL Saturday #116 which was the first ever SQL Saturday organized in India. I had the opportunity to present at the event and it was definitely an experience that I enjoyed immensely! Right at the outset, I want to call out two aspects of the event:

  • The audience – The audience participation and enthusiasm was amazing without whom this event wouldn’t have been a success!
  • Our sponsors, volunteers and SQL PASS – It’s needless to say that the event without the support of our sponsors and volunteers wouldn’t have been possible!

The event had two tracks with even a SQL Server Clinic which was like an Ask-the-Expert session where you could bring the problems that you experience with SQL Server and discuss it with the SQL experts from CSS. This was a new addition which was the brainwave of my colleague, Tejas Shah [Twitter]. If you have attended the SQL Pass Summit, then you will be familiar with this concept.

I was presenting on Demystifying SQL Server Memory Dumps which I thoroughly enjoyed presenting! I have already uploaded my presentation to the SQL Saturday website. All the debugging demos shown are available under the debugging category tag on my blog.

Thank you everyone who attended in making this a fun event for us!!

Here are some other blog posts on the event from other speakers/attendee: Lohith [Speaker], Sudeepta [Attendee/Volunteer], Manas [Volunteer/Attendee], Varun Dhawan [Attendee] and Vinod Kumar [Speaker].
