A Year of Winter End with a Bang – Microsoft MVP – Yay!!!

This winter has been a wonderful journey for me. The only difference is the winter has been all year long. In September 2014, it started with the SQLServerGeeks site revamp. Then came the One DMV a Day series, the longest one day series on any topic on SQL Server so far.  While the series happened, I got a chance to attend my first international conference at PASS Summit 2014. The US visit in November was a good way to start the peak of winter at -3 degrees. Unfortunately this year I will not be able to make it to PASS Summit, as a new member is about to join my family.

Back in India in December, the preparations were high to announce the SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2015, Asia’s first and the largest SQL conference. You all know how big the conference has become. Chilling January in India was served with the most awesome event of the year.

Selection of my session for SQLBits has been so overwhelming. My first international speaking experience – The news made my February a long cool wait of my travel to London.

March has presented me with the challenge of London cold. I have hardly seen the sun for next one month as I cherished every moment at SQLBits and visiting family in London. Not to mention, the great masters and experts of SQL world, I met again.

April was quiet warm but thanks to the busy schedule at office which kept me cold in the AC during the day. The conference is closer by a month now and task list has been laid out for the SQLServerGeeks team. By end of April I landed in Australia.

Australia welcomes with the spirit of welcoming winter with me. Day by day I have seen the day getting shorter and colder, the whole May. This also made it easy for me to stick around the laptop and announce our speakers and winners for #SSGAS2015.

June has seen the best in the world speakers announced amidst the chilling shorter days. The speakers are out. The sessions are out. My travel plans to India are final. And just when I thought the winter can’t be any better…

A moment I will cherish forever. A moment to live.  A moment to celebrate. A moment to THANK.
