  • OT: Thank You, Microsoft

    cross-posted from AndyLeonard.me… Each April 1st for the past five years, I have been honored to receive an email from Microsoft informing me I have been recognized as a SQL Server MVP. Tomorrow will be different. Back in January – when I wrote this – I requested Microsoft not consider me for renewal. I have enjoyed serving as a Microsoft MVP. I ...

  • “Do Philanthropy Where You Are”

    That call to action from Microsoft Leadership struck a chord with many in the SQL Server MVP Community. The response? SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, released at the PASS Summit 2009. Proceeds from the sale of that book continue to go to War Child International. It hasn’t stopped there, though. This year, SQL Server MVPs have completed SQL Server MVP ...

  • Time for the yearly Microsoft Pilgrimage known as the MVP Summit

    One of the most fun events of the year is the MVP Summit if perhaps for no other reason than my preparation for it is packing a suitcase. No presentations to write, prepare for, nothing. No activities that I have to do anything more than show up with my 2 shovels. One for the amazing amounts of knowledge that will be flowing from the Microsoft ...

  • An honor to be among the SQL Server MVPs

    I just found out last night that I was officially awarded SQL MVP.  I am honored to be among those that I respect and admire.  I don’t contribute for the recognition and as a former MVP Lead I know the caliber of those that contribute to the SQL Server community, and even those that are not MVP, I am grateful for those of you who have ...

  • What will I be doing at PASS?

    I felt horrible last year when I missed the MVP Deep Dives book signing at PASS.  I took part instead in a focus group that ran a little late, and still regret it.  So this year I wanted to get a jump on where I'll be, and this will help me stick with it.  So if you'll be at PASS and want to track me down to meet me, catch up, or ...

  • Project Phoenix

    Introduction A few years back, Microsoft gave MVPs MSDN Subcription cards they could pass on to others. The cards gave recipients access to a full-year MSDN Ultimate subscription - a $12,000 value. At the time, I was nominated for MVP but not awarded. So an MVP gave me one of the cards. He told me he believed I would be an MVP one day and ...

  • Congratulations MVPs - New and Renewed!

    Microsoft recognizes Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) on the first day of each quarter and yesterday was an ''MVP Day.'' Some people had a great day yesterday. Congratulations to new and renewed MVPs! Others were disappointed. I've been there and want to encourage those nominated and not awarded. You're not doing community stuff for ...

  • Please Vote: Windowing Enhancements in SQL Server

    Back in January 2007, SQL guru Itzik Ben-Gan posted a series of MS Connect enhancement requests concerning windowing function enhancements.  Those who have used the ROW_NUMBER(), RANK(), DENSE_RANK(), and NTILE() functions on SQL 2005 and 2008, you already know how useful they are.  They simplify code and can improve performance ...
