Today I had a very informative session in SQL Server community meet up at Microsoft Office in Dubai, UAE. This usually occurs every last Tuesday of the month. I must appreciate the SQL Server User group (www.uaessug.com) who have been organizing it very well for the last one year. This meet up usually consists of two comprehensive and informative sessions that focus on the SQL Server latest technology, best practice, user experience, tips & tricks. I usually attend this meet up because I get an opportunity to network with SQL Server experts face to face instead of Facebook chat :). I was the speaker in today’s meet up along with Mr. Mohammed Owais (CTO at CAZAR).
Following topics were covered in today’s session:
- UDFs are evil and other execution plan nightmares presented by Mr. Mohammed Owais
- The easy path to compliance with SQL Server Audit presented by me
We focused on delivering the latest technology enhancements, best practices and troubleshooting (the scariest part) throughout the event and hands on with live demos to demonstrate the real world challenges and its solution.
I hope today’s session was informative and believe that everybody got to add something to their knowledge-village 🙂
Our next meetup will be in January 2015.
