I’m an MVP: now what?
Today when I checked my mailbox I found an amazing surprise: I joined the ranks of the Most Valuable Professionals for SQL Server!
I am honoured to join a community of people that I highly respect and have always been my inspiration. The MVPs I had the pleasure to meet are a model to strive for: exceptional technical experts and great community leaders that devote their own time to spread their knowledge. I have never considered myself nearly as good as those exceptional people and receiving this award means that now I have to live up to the overwhelming expectations that it sets.
So, now what?
This award maybe means that I’m on the right track. I will continue to help the community with my contribution, hoping that somebody find it useful in the journey with SQL Server. I will continue to spread whatever I know about SQL Server and all the technologies around it with my blog posts, my articles and my forum answers. I will continue to speak at conferences, SQL Saturdays and technology events around me.
The award opens new possibilities and new ways to contribute and I won’t miss the opportunity to do more!
I am really grateful to those who made it happen, in particular the exceptional people at sqlservercentral.com, where my journey with the SQL Server community began many years ago.
A huge thank you goes also to the Italian #sqlfamily that introduced me to speaking at SQL Server events.
And now, let’s rock this 2015!
