2014 is coming and like many of you I have
some resolutions for the New Year. Before that I wish you a new year full of success
and happiness. Year 2013 was a year that I did some speaking on webinars such
as PASS DWBI virtual chapter, I’ve also done some international speaking such
as TechEd, and PASS Summit 2013. PASS Summit 2013 was my first experience in
Summit and even in US, I’m glad that I meet lots of SQL Server professionals by
person there. I’ve spoken in SQL Saturdays and user group meetings. I also
wrote major section of my new book on Microsoft Business Intelligence with SQL
Server which will be published soon by Packt Publishing. I’ve also started
Radacad.com website with some tutorials on SSIS 2012. I’ve wrote some blog
posts in on SQL Server mostly SSIS, MDS and BI. And I was participated in forums
(not as hyper-active as I was in previous years).
So here is my resolution for upcoming year:

tutorial videos about SSIS, MDS, BI, and SQL Server. I would upload videos more
frequent rather than before. This website is something that I like to work on
because I feel that people would get benefits from free video tutorials, and
that definitely help people to learn things better with real world samples and
demos. This will help people to get better jobs, promotion and even start their
own business. So that’s my burning desire to help everyone to be successful in
their professional life.
- More international technical speaking. I
would be happy to reveal real world demos of working with Business Intelligence
and Data Warehousing challenges that can be revealed through international
- Writing more; book, article, and weblog
posts. I promise that I would write more often in my weblog, and I will write
articles and chapters on technologies that I am passionate about.
- Extending my community activities;
participating in forums, hosting more user group sessions, and even SQL
Saturday here in New Zealand, and helping other community groups (virtually or
These are list of my professional life resolutions,
I wish you all success in your resolutions as well.
