Well, I guess that’s it. It’s time to say goodbye to 2010 and welcome a brand new year: 2011!

Like last year, in this post I am presenting a set of selected tweets I did in 2010 grouped into different categories.

Again, it was a great experience communicating with the SQL Server Community among other, via Twitter. I hope you find my tweets useful!

The categories of my tweets are:

  • SQL Server Performance Tips
  • Events-Related – Screencasts – Webcasts
  • Blog Announcements
  • Microsoft DevDays 2010 – Cyprus
  • Regional CEE MVP Open Days 2010
  • Miscellaneous

OK! Enough “talking!” Here are the tweets!

[Microsoft DevDays 2010 – Cyprus]
#DevDays 2010 in Cyprus was a big success! A huge thanks to @ikarld for organizing this great event for Cypriot software developers!!

See you at #Microsoft #DevDays 2010 in #Cyprus! – http://bit.ly/aGA85p #in #MVPBuzz

Session testing completed within time. All set for tomorrow!

My presentation for #Microsoft DevDays 2010 is ready! Heading for the demos tomorrow! #in #CDNUG

Preparing my session for #Microsoft DevDays – It’s all about data! – http://bit.ly/9G8qhs #MVPBuzz #in

All set! Now let’s talk about Data Access!

OK, I think it is time for some Greek frappe coffee and a final test of my session for tomorrow’s #DevDays 2010 in Cyprus! #in

Tomorrow it will be a great day for software developers in #Cyprus! #Microsoft #DevDays 2010 will be taking place! #in

Less than a day left for MS #DevDays 2010 in #Cyprus! #in

I guess that’s it! My demos for #Microsoft #DevDays 2010 are fully completed! Who knows? I’ll might prepare a bonus demo as well! 🙂 #in

Playing around with Fiddler2 and my WCF data service, i really like this tool! 🙂 #in

@dgkanatsios Totally agree. Fiddler is a great tool! I always use it in my demos when WCF data services (and not only) are involved 🙂

When testing a WCF data service in IE8 remember to uncheck “Turn on feed reading view” in Internet Options-Content-Feeds and Web Slices.

Great Visual Studio 2010 Theme Pack for Windows 7 http://bit.ly/bCEcNA

@Damir Great idea! I am sure they will like it! 🙂

WCF Data Service completed! “Consuming” the service in IE8 🙂

LINQ to Entities demos completed. It is time to build a WCF data service…

Demos set 1 completed. Already 1 am. Tomorrow I will complete the rest of my demo sets: LINQ to Entities and WCF Data Services!

Working on my first set of demos on Entity Framework for #DevDays 2010. Working with Visual Studio 2010 is so cool!

SELECT ‘ALTER DATABASE ‘ + name + ‘ SET READ_WRITE WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE’ FROM SYS.DATABASES | The gen. T-SQL switches the DBs to R/W mode

A simple advise: always double-check your T-SQL code which is to be used for manipulating multiple databases! #MVPBuzz

Wishing a Happy New Year 2011 full of health and of course … SQL Server!
