Friday brings in a new SQL MCM 2008 colleague to announce – one who already achieved both SQL Server 2005 Microsoft Certified Master and SQL Server 2005 Microsoft Certified Architect certification (and I anticipate it’s just a matter of time before he achieves SQL 2008 MCA too).  Please meet Dirk Gubbels:

Dirk Gubbels, Senior Consultant, Microsoft.  Dirk Gubbels is a senior consultant at Microsoft, and has been working with SQL Server since version 4.2. He has been involved in the most demanding SQL server based applications in Belgium and all over the EMEA region. His main focus areas are Design, Performance and Availability for both OLTP and Business Intelligence environments. Dirk has also been a speaker on various SQL server and Development oriented events.

Congratulations Dirk!
