Ahmedabad SQL Server UG - February 2009 Meeting

This is the first time I am posting about the User Group activities in this blog. So, probably I should start with an introduction. I run a SQL Server User Group in Ahmedabad and we meet on every 3rd Saturday of the month.

We had a great time discussing some of the basic SQL Server topics this week. Pinal Dave did a wonderful session where he presented some very interesting points related to the way SQL Server Query Optimizer uses indexes.

My session was more of an interactive discussion. While writing my series of posts on SQL Server IDENTITY columns, I came across several interesting questions and I then compiled a long list of 65 questions. We discussed those 65 questions and their answers and the 'why-how' part of each of them.

Pinal has written a detailed post about the event. You can find his post here. You can find my post about the same here.

Finally, here is a group photo.
