Today, Alessandro Goncalves, a Senior Support Engineer for Microsoft based in Las Colinas become this program's 100th MCM to be certified in Exchange Server 2007!
It's a great achievement, and we're all very proud of him. He attended the R3 rotation, in March/April just gone and passed his Qual Lab at the second bite earlier today.
Only 100? It doesn't seem like a lot given the product is 2 years old now and about to be replaced, but 1 MCM touches tens of thousands of mailboxes, if not hundreds of thousands, or even millions, every week, we have a wide touch. Just think, the next time you open a support case, you might end up talking to one of the most highly trained and skilled Exchange engineers in the world. Next time your company is engaging on a tough and complex project, get an MCM involved. I have the pleasure of meeting some of the best and brightest in the world, and then spend my time trying to make them better. The least we can all do is keep them busy...
