Tech-Ed 2011 on the Road in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad (Amdavad) was fortunate to had “Tech-Ed 2011 onthe Road” event on 11th Jun 2011. I have attended many Tech-Edevents in Ahmedabad but I am happy and surprised too with the overwhelmingresponse this event gets this time. 
Event was held in AMA, Ahmedabad. Hall capacity was approx300 person even organizers had to arrange chairs to accommodate more persons,so even Pinal & Jacob had to takeinitiative to find empty space in the room and arrange the chair there so morepeople can sit there. Hats off to their spirit and feelings towards communitymembers. BTW, even arranging more chairs, many people were standing at the backof the hall without any complain and I am sure, they too were enjoyingsessions.
We had back to back interesting technical sessions. 
1st session was taken by Mr. Mahesh Dhola regarding Light Switchwhich was quite interesting due to practical demos.
2nd Session was taken by Pinal and we all knew that hispresentation and technical skills. It was not like just purely TECHNICALSESSION but it was so interactive and been more interesting by his presentationskill. It was like our Gujarati idioms “Gyan sathe Gammat”. I really reallyreally enjoyed it a lot. It was awesome, amazing. He used to give understandingof really really hard topic, like Wait Types, in very easy way which most ofthe people can’t do. Thanks to you Pinal.
After Pinal’ssession, It was Ahmedabad’s true honor to have speaker like star Evangelist ofMicrosoft India, Mr. HarishVaidyanathan. He took session for HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, though I haveleft web development for years but I thoroughly enjoyed his session, EspeciallyCanvas, Video and Audio facility given in HTML5. It was really awesome, If Iwould not have attended this session, I would never know about these featuresthis early as I have no touch with HTML now. Thanks Harish.
After Harish’ssession, There was MOST AWAITED session there, which is LUNCH. J you know what??? “GulabJamun” and “Paneer Butter Masala Sabji”  are my favorite so enjoyed it a lot and wantedto had small nap but one more guest speaker “DhananjayKumar”  won’t let me do it by his goodsession over Microsoft’s “Mango Phone”.
He had small session but was interesting to see multitasking3rd Party application functionality in Mango Phone. After thissession there was no chance to sleep, no SQL guys could ever think to have napin the session of legendary speaker Mr. Jacob Sebastian.
He is the proud of Ahmedabad and real SQL/XML guru. As Pinal has said in the starting ofsession, Jacob really felt us bad by his session, he show us what we were doingwrong so far everyday in our TSQL, he show us worst practices in TSQL code.
After finishing of this SQL session there was one moreinteresting session by one of my friend TejasShah on ASP.NET Tips & Tricks. He comes up with less slides and morepractical example, people were happy to see the few of the very good tips fromhim.
After Tejas’s seesion, wehad many gifts giveaway to the winners who won the quiz during the event andthen we had tea after finishing the event and good chance for networking. 
Finally a BIG THANKS to Microsoft to give us this goodopportunity.
