Now the most important part is how to install SharePoint server February 2014 Cumulative Update.

Previous releases of the SharePoint Server 2013 cumulative update included both the executable and the .CAB file in the same self-extracting executable download.

All are necessary and must be placed in the same folder to successfully install the update. All are available by clicking the same Hotfix Download Available link in the KB article for the release.

It is a great moment for SQLServerGeeks.com as this event would be one of the biggest event by SQLServerGeeks.

I also got to know that SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2015 is not just the largest but the only SQL Server conference in Asia apart from Microsoft conference.

Looking at the populatry o the event first thing you must do is Register for the event.



Looking at the cost of registration I assume we are only playing for the Lunch and snacks where as the SQL Server learning is completely free 🙂

Little bit about the conference and its tracks. There are 40+ speakers, 60+ sessions for all this 5 tracks with a awesome learning experience.  Session would be related to

Database Administration
Database Development Business Intelligence
Big Data and so on…..

The sessions scale out on knowledge level from 200 through 500 from the SQL experts around the globe. Additionally, you will have networking opportunities with your peers, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors.

Look forward to meet you in SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2015 !
