Had no time to update my blog for few weeks, was really busy with work:
- New BI project: This is for one of the leading banks in Sri Lanka. This is the first time I am engaging with banking industry, in terms of BI. Lot of things to learn, really interesting.
- New set of SQL Server questions: It is almost done, this is the third time I involved with questions making. I have already written questions to two Microsoft SQL Server 2008 exams and this is for, again Microsoft but not for MS certifications. Anyway, all questions have been reviewed, seems they are happy with my questions :).
- New SQL Server 2005 batch: Done. Conducted another class for developers. Students were good, though there were gaps in knowledge levels.
- New SQL Server 2008 batch: Really interesting, this is my first SQL Server 2008 class. Participants are really good, lot of questions. This course is bit different, have not taught Maintaining SQL Server course (6231A) before. I am not much comfortable with the official materials, seems course book is not so rich and found some mistakes too, anyway it is too early to make comments on it.
