Yesterday (24 March 2015), I had the opportunity to present Extended Events at SQL Server User Group meet-up. This event was held at Microsoft Office in Dubai, UAE. Generally this event is held every last Tuesday of the month. SQL Server User group (www.uaessug.com) have been organizing it extremely 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 yesterday’s meet up along with Mr. Mike Mohan (CFO at Microsoft).
Following topics were covered in yesterday’s session:
- Real Life Power BI presented by Mr. Mike Mohan – Microsoft
- Introduction to Extended Events was by me
We focused on how a non technical user can make best use of Power BI & its integration on different devices, best practices and troubleshooting (the scariest part) throughout the event and hands on with live demos to demonstrate the practical implementations of Power BI & Extended Events.
I hope yesterday’s session was informative as usual. Our next meetup will be held in April 2015. Hope the coming sessions would witness more participants.
