Microsoft MVP for the third year in a row!

Today is a very special day! I just got re-awarded with the Microsoft MVP Award on SQL Server for the third year in a row!


Dear Artemakis Artemiou,

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2011 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in SQL Server technical communities during the past year.


I feel really honored and happy by receiving once again the MVP Award. The strongest motivation for contributing within the SQL Server Community is the Community itself. It is the willingness to share knowledge with fellow Community members, the joy of belonging to a broader technical group of people who share the same passion for technology and above all, the love and enthusiasm for SQL Server!

I would like to say a huge thank you to the SQL Server Community for being just awesome! It is a privilege to be a part of this Community.

Also, many thanks to Microsoft for strongly and continuously supporting the technical communities around the globe!

I would also like to thank the SQL Server Product Group for developing such great technologies and everyone involved in the MVP Award Program.

On my end, as I did in the last two years, I promise that I will keep on doing my best regarding my involvement in the SQL Server community and keep on sharing knowledge!!!
