I am back with another episode of Uncut & Unedited. In this episode my guest is Mr. Pinal Dave. Pinal is a SQL Server Evangelist in Microsoft.
I have been trying to set up a time to interview with Pinal from last couple of weeks. Nothing had materialized so far. But last Sunday i was fortunate enough to have the time slot worked out between Pinal and myself. I met him in his hotel where he was staying currently in Bangalore.
It was a super fun interview session i had this time. He was a down to earth person. Infact pre interview session believe it or not we had the ice breaker go on for nearly 1 hour. I came to know more of Pinal as a family man, as a technologist and his craving for constant change. He has accepted a position in Microsoft India, Bangalore and had relocated to Bangalore just this month.
In this episode i tried to know more about Who Pinal is and what does he do, How should we pronounce his last name and many people call it in many ways , how he entered into the world of SQL/SQL Server, History of his blog www.sqlauthority.com, What does evangelism mean to him and What are his community initiative. I must say not only is he a good speaker but also a good actor. Check out the last bit of the interview. That was not at all planned he just made it out.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to Pinal for the interview.
So folks, tune in and let me know your comments.
Till next time, Happy coding. Code with passion, Decode with patience.
