I want to congratulate our newest SQL Server 2008 Certified Master, Nicholas Cain. Nicholas is very well known by most of us here in the Redmond area, and he is a frequent participant in our local #SQLNomz get-togethers.
Here is brief introduction to Nicholas:
Nicholas has been a SQL Server DBA since the turn of the millennia. He got his start going through a 7.0 to 2000 upgrade and has worked with those editions as well as 2005 and 2008 in critical highly available production environments. In 2010 he started on a new aspect of working with SQL Server as he gave his first SQL Saturday presentation. Since then he has spoken at several other events including the 2011 PASS Summit.
