So here I am, writing the last post for 2014! Don't worry new posts for 2015 are coming up soon! :) With only few hours left to welcome the new year, my thoughts go back deep into 2014 trying recollect the highlights of this year through my personal aspect. Beyond the personal highlights I would like to add a note regarding the Community-related ones.
In 2014 I launched Artemiou Data Tools: a brand new community initiative aiming to provide high-quality, simple and still straight-to-the point tools. All tools have and will always have a Community Edition free for all! New websites, new content, new articles, new software and much more is what I recollect for 2014. Another major highlight is my participation to the MS Conference in Cyprus on March 21 2014 as an invited speaker where I talked about #SQLServer 2014 and the In-Memory OLTP Engine - that session was amazing!
Throughout all these years, the interaction with you, the community goes even stronger. This interaction really excites me and gives me strength to move on and come up with more initiatives! The discussions after my sessions in conferences or via your comments in my articles, the email exchange with your questions and topics for discussion and all the rest methods of communication is a unique experience for me and I am proud that I am part of this great SQL Server community.
The year 2015 will be even more powerful! I am planning of releasing the In-Memory OLTP Simulator (stay tuned on this one - it is something really amazing), a new eBook, website, other new tools, articles and much more!
Wishing you a Happy New Year 2015 always in good health and a constant quest for knowledge!
