One of the sessions of this meeting were the Employee Awards for 2008.
To my pleasant surprise I have received the Leadership Award for the year 2008 "in recognition of accomplishments far exceeding company expectations" and for gaining and applying technical expertise on the technologies involved with my professional duties.
It was a great moment!
I believe that one of the most important factors for professional success, is to work with technologies that really inspire you and that you enjoy researching on them all the time. Well, one of these technologies is definitely SQL Server!!! :)
Easily secure your SQL Server instances! Try out DBA Security Advisor!
DBA Security Advisor was developed by SQLArtBits. The tool was being carefully developed for an entire year and it contains comprehensive security checks and recommendations based on proven SQL Server security best practices. Feel free to download and use the Community Edition which is free and if you find it useful, you can consider upgrading to the Enterprise Edition!
