Last week, I challenged y’all to come up with slogans for SQL Server 2022.
I have to confess that when I came up with the idea for that blog post, I thought y’all would take it seriously. I thought you’d come up with ideas that were meant to show off Microsoft’s hard work.
I should have known better.
Being readers of this blog, many of you share my oddball sense of humor, and you came up with totally goofy stuff. I laughed out loud a lot. Here are my 3 favorite entries, each of which won a Level 3 Bundle with a Live Class Season Pass, Recorded Class Season Pass, Consultant Toolkit, and SQL ConstantCare:
“SQL 2022 – When You’re *Almost* Ready for the Cloud” – Will
“SQL Server 2022 – Your data can rest Azure’d.” Will S.
“SQL Server 2022 – We added some new things but left all the broken things you’ve come to love” – Bo J. Anderson
