  • Blog Post: SQL Server 2008 certifications

    Just reminding you that we're doing a live meeting in two days to review (and update you) on our SQL Server 2008 certificat ions. This will be good for people new to certification, because we'll explain the certs that are available and how to get them. For those of you with an MCDBA or SQL 2005 cert...
  • Blog Post: A few more bits from the SharePoint live meeting

    This poast has two things in it. The Q&A from the SharePoint meeting that some of you have requested. There's not much here, and it hasn't been edited or proofed , she disclaims wildly. These fast-typed, Live Meeting answers don't always have the full picture--so consider yourself warned. Point out...
  • Blog Post: Get to Know SQL Server 2008 Certifications

    We've posted information about SQL Server 2008 certifications - and the related prep guides - to our site. Hope you find it helpful; let us know if anything is amiss. Don't forget that Jeff will be at TechEd Developers talking about all of this next week in Orlando, and Gerry's on his blog . They are...
  • Blog Post: You might not care, but:

    As follow up to my fascinating poast about TechReady , our technical training event in Seattle for worldwide Microsoft field employees, here is a fascinating mini-post-show report. TechReady Mini-Report MSFT employees took 1,538 exams at the certification center run, in excellent fashion, by the Prometric...
  • Blog Post: Server 2008 certification Live Meeting

    Here is the recording I promised: https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/eventsnew/view?id=msft120507lm_am&pw=AET789&cn= ( jump to minute 4 ). Tomorrow I'll poast a summary and some FAQ from the meeting. In about 10 days, the slides and transcribed speaker notes will be posted on the MCP site for you...
  • Blog Post: what's new, MCPussycat

    Hello. Apparently, even with YT out of the office, people were still able to accomplish things at MIcrosoft. Though this damages my sense of self-worth and hurts my feelings a little, I won't stop you from hearing the new bits, as follows: Lifecycle policies for new generation (that I poasted about earlier...
  • Blog Post: Welcome kits for recently released certifications

    In my role as MCP Aggravation Manager, I'm doing my best to think of new things to poast that will annoy certified professionals across the land and inspire a flood of angry commentary (and occasional intimation that I do not stand up to my pet cat*). Here's my next stab. Delay in Welcome Kit Shipments...
  • Blog Post: Want to be a technical author?

    My friends Linda and Ken from the Microsoft Press team presented a lunch session at TechEd on How to Become a Technical Author . For those of you with technical authoring aspirations but unable to attend said session, I'm poasting a somewhat unreliable mini-summary here. Ken agreed to host a Live Meeting...
  • Blog Post: N.T.T.N.: straight bloggin'

    My Microsoft Learning Neighbor to the North (NTTN) colleague, Jennifer, is a guest bloggette on Microsoft's Canadian IT pro site ...her topic is "certification," perhaps you've heard of it? While you're there, be sure to read her bio at the bottom of the poast, it is funny. PS two notes for those...
  • Blog Post: Punchline + Longhorn Upgrade Exam Offer Q&A

    So, a booth babe and a geek walk in to a bar after a Longhorn preview. While waiting to be seated, the geek says, "Damn, what a great Server!" The booth babe, looking impatient, says "Server?! We haven't even gotten a table yet!" ALTERNATE ENDING: ...the geek smiles at a female geek at the bar and says...
  • Blog Post: Don't be alarmed; what you're experiencing is perfectly normal (or, news about Vista exam 71-620)

    If you are waiting for your exam results from 71-620, you're not the only one... unfortunately. Usually beta testers will get their results in advance of the exam going live , but in this case something funky happened and beta results are delayed. I'll poast on this when there is further news! Apologies...
  • Blog Post: my blog isn't racy.

    I need some help to fancy up my blog, like from a blogging specialist technical consultant or a blog caddy. Maybe a caddy (cheaper than consultants?) would be better, like someone who, when I'm about to type something, will lean in and whisper, "I recommend bold font on that last sentence." or "Trika...
