Officially a SQL Server MVP!
Posted by denglishbi on July 2, 2010
This afternoon I got the long awaited email that I have been patiently waiting for…”Congratulations 2010 Microsoft MVP!” I was so thrilled that I had no idea what to do. Should I scream? Give someone a high five? Do a cartwheel? Maybe a flip? I hopped on twitter and sent out a quick message to release some of my excitement
I then sent out an email to everyone at Superior Consulting Services where I just started this week. Everything has been a little hectic lately wrapping up work with a client, taking a week off (no idea what to do), starting a new job, and now getting the SQL Server MVP status.
I want to thank my family for being understanding, patient, and for accepting my intense passion for Microsoft technology. It is an honor to receive the recognition for all of the hard work and efforts that I have done over the years with blogging, presentations, videos, tweeting, forum support, and help running the local PASSMN user group.
So where do I go from here? Only time will tell. I am moving on to a very exciting project with a client after the holiday weekend, so looking forward to that. We have Itzik Ben-Gan presenting at the user group this month PASSMN July 20, 2010 Monthly Meeting and this is a major launch year for Microsoft. It just seems like all of the stars are aligning and everything is falling into place. I have a real good feeling about what is in store and I know that we have a lot more to look forward to with the next release of SQL Server, so I can’t wait for the CTPs to start coming out.
Once again, I am very grateful for the recognition and looking forward to taking it to the next level. Hopefully one of my four session submissions to the national PASS 2010 Summit will be accepted, but before that we need to get ready for our local annual PASSMN SQL Summit 2010.
