7th Position as an Expert of the year in Experts-Exchange.com

I am actively running my blog SQLHub.com from March-2009 and have started participated actively in Experts-Exchnage.com from the April-2009.  From the month of May 2009 I was in the list of top 5 experts in few zones like SQL Server, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 etc. Finally today experts of the year list came out from Experts-Exchange official and I am really very glad to see my name in the TOP-10 Expert of year.
Since last two months I am really very busy with heavy work load but this name in TOP-10 list encouraged me enough to participate more with community and reach to more and more people. I have learned lot of things from community so I consider it my duty to helping more and more people.
Thanks to everybody who always encouraged me in my mission especially Mr. Pinal Dave who never let myself stop helping people. He is real source of encouragement and inspiration.

Article on Audit facility in SQL Server 2008 in Experts-Exchange

Audit has been really one of the more interesting, most useful, yet difficult to maintain topics in the history of SQL Server.

In earlier versions of SQL people had very few options for auditing in SQL Server. It typically meant using SQL Trace which is not the most intuitive tools. However in the latest editions, we are now given quite a lot of power for auditing with some purpose built tools. The SQL 2008 Audit is meant to be replacing SQL Trace, it is faster, more granular and easier to interact with from SQL Server Management Studio, and with code. In this article, I am using a T-SQL code approach.

Since this is one of the big topics in SQL Server 2008 (and bound to become more popular), it is not possible to cover it completely here. However, I will try to give you one detailed but simple example as an introduction to SQL Audit.

1050 answers in forums like Experts-Exchange.com and Forums.Asp.Net and 225 articles in SQLHub.com

Well It’s been almost six and a half months I am helping the community via my own blog SQLHub.com and few forums, mainly Experts-Exchange.com and sometime Forums.Asp.Net. Today I thought to calculate about how many people I have helped in forums so just went to statistics and found that I have answered 936 questions in the area of Microsoft technology in Experts-Exchange.com and in forums.asp.net, I have answered approx 114 questions so far, so the total is 1050. In my blog SQLHub.com, I have written 225 articles till date and have received so many comments and 100s of emails from readers about appreciating my work.

I am really pleased to have really warm welcome and co-operation from the community. It is really encouraging me to work more for the community as this is the great way to share and learn new from other experts and colleague in community.

I hope to have same co-operation and encouraging comment from all of you in the future also and I promise today that I will work more and more in community and try to help each and every single individual who will come to me.

BTW, you can refer my Experts-Exchange.com profile and Asp.Net profile too, for more information about me and my community activity.

Thanks & Regards.

Started contributing in ASP.NET also

My regular blog reader knows that I used to help community by my blog www.SQLHub.com and by Experts-Exchange.com. Due to high response from the community and few suggestions from my friends I started participating in www.Asp.Net forum also. Actually my account in Asp.net forum is few year old but I have started contributing since last three days only. You know that I am working with Microsoft technology and how is it possible that I don’t contribute anything in Microsoft’s own website? J



Since my prime area of working is SQL Server, I would love to write blog my website and give solution to the people in Experts-Exchange.com; I will share my knowledge of .NET framework and SQL Server both in Asp.Net for a change now onwards.
So from now, I will be contributing to community from three ways.
Happy Helping!!!!
