On October 1st, 2016 humbled to be received Microsoft MVP Award. And today, October 17th, a special package awaited me at the post office. The award it self.
The actual certificate to the MVP award for the Microsoft Data Platform category (SQL Server).
Besides the award, many goodies were also included in the package. One of them are stickers. I am sure there will be plenty of computers to put these stickers on. And bikes, fixed geared bikes, coffee mugs, etc. 🙂
What does the award mean to me:
- it means to work with passion
- it means combining the love of the work with expertise / knowledge
- it is gratitude to what I have been doing on the Microsoft SQL Server platform
- it is a confirmation and – yes – an award to what I have been doing so far.
In terms of changes, nothing has changed in particular with this award. Keeping passion in what I was doing so far is also my future plan.I will continue to strive for better and keep the improvements up with everything that I do. Helping others and taking care (remember sharing is caring) of community and continue spreading the passion for T-SQL and statistics, of course.
Thanks to everyone, world-wide SQL Family and SQL, T-SQL, NoSQL, USQL, PowerShell, DataMining, Python, MachineLearning, Azure, Spark, .NET, C#, well you get the picture… friends, people inspiring me, people pushing me and a special thanks to Microsoft for this award. I have to stop before it gets really corny.
Unfortunately no T-SQL or no R code is available for this blog post. 🙂
