One of the SQL Server GURU and one of my favorite MVP Jacob Sebastian
has teamed up with 30 well known SQL Server MVP/Author/Experts to organize one of the biggest online event of the year 2010 “SQL Server Quiz 2010
”. I am so much excited to participate in this quiz competition, one can enhance their knowledge of SQL Server at the same time share their knowledge with community in these challenges.
This event will be going to start from 1st October 2010 to 31st October 2010. Each day one SQL Server quiz master will ask one question and will moderate the discussion and answer of that question. Finally Quiz Master will rate your answer between rank 1 and 10. Score of all 31 questions will be summed up to identify the winner of the competition after 31st October 2010.
This event is not only for DBAs or SQL Developer, I have already told my .Net developers to register there to sharpen their skills in SQL Server.
You don’t have only change to share/enhance your knowledge but have chance to win some of exciting prices like Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle, Apple iPod Nanos and free license of some cool SQL Server tools .
So what are you waiting for???
