Today I re-awarded for the 3rd times for Microsoft MVP Award in Microsoft SQL Server. I really appreciate support of all of you my friends, I cannot do that without support of all of you.

For those of you who are not familiar with Microsoft MVP award, here is a quick description:

The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP)
Award is our way of saying thank you to exceptional, independent
community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and
real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others.

It is part of Microsoft’s commitment to supporting and enriching technical communities.

before the rises of the Internet and social media, people have come
together to willingly offer their ideas and best practices in technical
communities. At Microsoft, we recognize the vital role these individuals
play in the adoption and advancement of technology—and in helping our
customers do great things with our products.

This was the inspiration for the Microsoft MVP Award.

two decades ago, we awarded 37 technical community leaders as MVPs.
Today, there are more than 4,000 MVPs worldwide. They represent more
than 90 countries, speak over 40 languages, answer more than 10 million
questions a year, and are awarded in almost 90 Microsoft
technologies—reflecting the breadth of our products and our global



I believe that this award is because of my contribution in these areas: Publishing SQL Server books, contributing in SQL Server online forums, running New Zealand Business Intelligence users group, Speaking in users group and SQL conferences and providing online trainings of SQL Server.

I need to thank;

– My dear wife, who supports me in all stages of my life

– My friend Pedro, who was beside me in writing book on SQL Server

– All of my professional friends, who helped me in raising the knowledge and spreading it

– My friend Dave Dustin, who helped me in starting NZ BI users group

– Microsoft New Zealand, because they helped me a lot to run NZ BI users group

– All of you visitors of my weblog, because you encouraged me to write more and more

I couldn’t made it without you all.
