Learn along with Dave is endingSad smile

Let me open with a big congratulations to last week’s winners (Damian Niezgoda, Michael Maher and Anthony McCarville) all of whom are getting a 32GB USB drive as their prize for completing my Microsoft Virtual Academy challenge - to pass the Office 365 for the IT Pro - Lync Online, SharePoint Online & Deployment exam.

I started this little initiative back in February as a way to get you excited about learning (again?) and to give you an extra incentive and some guidance.  I’ve been kicked off of my top spot on the Top Ten list for Ireland and have given away loads of TechNet Subscriptions and weekly prizes.  I did promise to keep this going until the Summer, which officially was the 1st May.  I still had a few prizes left and it’s been colder in the last few weeks than it was at Christmas!  Summer is finally here (it was 23 degrees in Belfast yesterday) and the forecast is looking good.  This will be your last MVA ChallengeSad smile

So, get your version of this screenshot into my inbox by the end of May (by close of play on Thursday May 31st).  Your challenge is to pass the Understanding Microsoft’s High-Availability Solutions test.

I hope I have been successful, that you’ve enjoyed playing along and that you’ll continue learning without my little incentives.

Unfortunately I can’t open this up to the world – you’ll have to give me an Irish address to claim your prize (North or South).
