As you may know there have been a lot of changes to the Microsoft Certified Master programme. You can now site the exam and lab without travelling to Redmond. By the looks of it, the exam and lab are still keeping the standards of a very high quality bar.
Yesterday, it was announced that Denny Cherry was the first person to pass both the lab AND the exam to join the SQL MCM community under the new programme. Major kudos to Denny, I’ve only met him very briefly in person at the last MVP summit, but has a huge online presence, and contributes a lot to the worldwide sql community.
