We’re midway through the second week of “Rotation 7” for the SQL Server Microsoft Certified Master program. We tried something new for this rotation, providing a copy of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Internals for each participant. So far we’ve been able to get four signatures on everyone’s copy (Paul Randal, Kimberly Tripp and Adam Machanic are instructors for the program, and Conor Cunningham was kind enough to stop by for a visit this morning.) See the photo below (notice that Adam’s signature rides the fence between attribute-centric and element-centric XML camps).

** Update! Kalen Delaney dropped by for a visit and signed everyone’s books!  Below is a photo will all five signatures.  **
