Exceptional DBA of the Year 2011 - Please vote for Jeff Moden

Every year Redgate has a competition to find the most exceptional DBA of the year. This year too they are conducting. One of the prize for the winner is a fully paid Sql pass summit. The best thing about this is that it is the community that votes for the winner.

This year there are five great DBA's who are on finals. One of them is Jeff Moden (MVP). He is one of the best guys I have met, both personally and professionally. Jeff gave a great presentation using Netmeeting for our SQL Server User group last year.

And last year at the summit, I had the pleasure to meet him in person at the summit. He was there giving presentation and I was there to attend. We used to go for other presentations together. We also talked shop while having Beer Samplers. I had a great time because I was able to hang around with a smart and funny guy like him. I was hoping that when I go for the summit this year I would be able to meet him again. This year he was not sure if he would come for the summit. There are quite a few personal reasons why he was not sure if he could make it or not. But if he wins this competition he will be attending the Summit for sure. And that is what I want.

Let me be honest, I want him to win. Not just because he is my friend and someone I look up on with respect but because he totally deserves it. He was doing a wonderful job at work that his colleagues decided to nominate him for this competition. He has given so much to the community through his articles and his help on forums that this is the least we can do to show our appreciation to him. So please vote for him here.

Yes, it sure did. I am glad that he won the award. I had a blast hanging around with this guy.

What an absolute blast we had.  Thank you guys for chumming around with me especially on the underground tour.

I'll also say that I'm greatly honored by what you good folks have done for me not only for the votes, but for all 3 of your friendships over the years.  Thanks for letting me serve.

--Jeff Moden
