On Jan 7 2012, Bangalore will witness one of the finest International event. The event is known as “SQL Saturday” or also known as “PASS SQL Saturday”. PASS stands for Professional Association for SQL Server.


Here is the official statement of what PASS SQL Saturdays are all about:

PASS SQLSaturdays are free 1-day training events for SQL Server professionals that focus on local speakers, providing a variety of high-quality technical sessions, and making it all happen through the efforts of volunteers. Whether you’re attending a SQLSaturday or thinking about hosting your own, we think you’ll find it’s a great way to spend a Saturday – or any day.

SQL Saturday #116 will be held in Bangalore on Jan 7 @ Microsoft Signature Building, Embassy Gold Links, Bangalore.

SSDTLogo_thumbI start year 2012 with my first speaking assignment for SQL Saturday #116. I will be speaking on “SQL Server Data Tools – Code Named JUNEAU”. This session will be all about how to do database development using Visual Studio 2010 and a new tool called as “SQL Server Data Tool or JUNEAU”. I don’t want to spill too much information here. Be there in the session to know more about this topic.

Here are other details of the event:

As you can see we have 2 tracks – Main Track & Practical Track. Some of the speakers to look out for are :

  • Rick Morelan – Author of “SQL Joes 2 Pros” series
  • Vinod Kumar – Technology Specialist, Microsoft India
  • Pinal Dave – SQL Server Evangelist, Microsoft India

I am aware of the above speakers and looking forward to their sessions. Also there are more speakers whom I haven’t met in the community. So this will be a good occasion to get acquainted with them. If you are around in this event do catch up with me – lemme say a hello to you Smile. Pretty excited to be at this event as this will be my second international event. Be there and take away loads of knowledge.

As usual – Happy Coding. Code with passion, Decode with patience.
