Chennai SQL Server User Group (CSSUG) meet

 Let me start with my sincere apologies first for not blogging consistently.

Primary reason is, my wife gave birth to our second child two months ago.  After becoming father of two kids my priorities are entierly changed.

secondly I had to face some issues in professional life recently, that made my restless for sometime.

and more importantly, learning the most from Paul Randal (my god father) and not to imitate his work is a challenge.

Let me try my level best and be consistent in coming days.

I had a chance to attend Chennai SQL Server User Group meet happened today (04-Aug) in Microsoft training centre, located in Radhakrishnan road, Chennai and I met some SQL Server contributors/MVPs like Vidhyasagar and Madhivanan.

I gave a presenation on ‘SQLDiag, SQL Nexus and PAL’ and explained how these tools can be used to collect and analyze performance data.

Vidhyasagar explained SQL Server 2012 new features and enhancements in detail.

The topic which Madhivanan presented today is very simple ‘NULL’. But the way he explained the  characteristics of NULL in different scenarios and NULL handling in other RDBMS made this session unique.
