Holy mackerel. Turns out you folks really liked my “Log Shipping to the Cloud with Amazon EC2 and S3” session at the SSWUG Virtual Conference this season. Based on attendance and survey feedback, I won the Best of Show award in the DBA track.
Lightning even struck twice: my Reaching Compliance with SQL Server 2008 presentation was a runner-up, along with Kevin Kline’s End-to-End Troubleshooting for SQL Server 2005 session.
I want to thank everybody who took the time to submit feedback surveys. The presenters really appreciate your feedback. (Especially when it leads to awards, ha ha ho ho.) I also want to point out the SQL Server 2008 Compliance Portal, which is a fantastic resource on compliance training by JC Cannon’s crew at Microsoft. I can’t recommend that highly enough – it’s some of the best free training I’ve seen online.
