Coverage Report: SQL Server Bangalore User Group Meeting # 2 – @ 22 December 2012

Posted by blakhani on December 23, 2012


After missing first SQL Server Bangalore UG meet due to team outing, I was ready to meet all my old friends at second SQL Server UG meet yesterday. First of all, Thanks to Vinod (B|T) for starting the idea of SQL Server Bangalore User Group and making it popular on social networking (Facebook www.facebook.com/groups/SQLBangalore and Twitter #SQLBangUG) I have been active on facebook page to help someone who is in need. Feel free to join the group.

As expected, I was able to meet Kamlesh (B|T), Manas (b|t), Sahal (b|t), Sandip (b|t), Sudeepta (b|t) (names are in alphabetical order) from the community. We missed Pinal (b|t)this time as he was not available in town.

Here is the highlights of the whole event as tweeted by me and others. Series of back to back session were suppose to start at 10:30 AM IST and room was getting full. Due to change in venue (from Signature building to Embassy building) there were some folks who were little late.

After my session, we had enough time left before close-out so Vinod did a session about Excel feature Flash Fill. All in the room were shocked and surprised with this feature. Here are the highlights of his amazing session.
