Data Platform MVP Award

MVP Logo

I am pleased to announce that I was awarded the Data Platform MVP Award by Microsoft on 1 January 2017.

Nothing changes with my customers. I will continue to look after you with the same level of trust. Though, I may ask for a plate of cookies at my next meeting.

My friend Kenneth Fisher said it best, when he was awarded in October 2016:

I’ll be honest and say it still hasn’t really sunk in yet. At least in part because I don’t really feel like I’ve done anything special. Mostly I just write a blog.

Thank you to Microsoft and, more specifically, the SQL Server community for recognising my contributions. This is for you.

Note: new blog posts will come out on Wednesdays from now on.
