Coverage Report – Another successful weekend spent with #SQLBangUG
Posted by blakhani on May 6, 2014
Last weekend, 3rd May 2014, was another remarkable day in history of SQL Bangalore User Group Meetings chapter. For those who are in Bangalore and have not attended the user group meeting has missed something. The meeting announcement was made on 18th April and I was one of the speaker along Sourabh, Amit, Pinal, Vinod and Kane (In order of the sessions). Amit has already given a summary and information about the sessions here (A full house–We could not have asked for more)
The theme of the meeting was “SQL Server 2014 – Community Launch” because this was the first UG after release of SQL Server 2014 to public. The response was overwhelming and till 2 May people were registering. We were sold out on eventbrite
It was full day event with session lined up on SQL Server 2014 new features. We have booked a room with 150 capacity and had a clue that we are overbooked so food was ordered for higher quantity
We have given enough warning to the folks who have registered about the timings.
At around 9:45, we were forced to close the registration because few non-registered used were allowed as they came much before 9:00 AM to make sure they don’t miss the event. Apologies to those who were sent back from reception.
While registrations were going on, I stated the event with some housekeeping announcement and people were still coming in
When I asked about repeat participants.. here was the response..
In less than 10 min, the room was FULL and people were standing.
More chairs were arrange and then once all were comfortable, Anupam started his keynote.
Followed by Sourabh
and then Amit..
Post lunch, we had Pinal come on stage
Followed by me..
These are few ripples on Facebook as feedback of the event
In case you missed this time, stay tuned. We would do another next month..
