In august 2011, I went to Berlin, that happened to be the closest MCM certification center for me in Sweden. I didn’t know what to expect from this certification at all. Somewhere I hoped that working with SQL Server from 1994 and teaching Microsoft courses since 1997 would help…

Certification started at 9:30 in the morning, so I went there a day before, to be able to chill in the hotel bar – or nervously trying to sleep 🙂

When the (food- and drink-less) certification was over, I felt brain-picked! I really felt like someone had squeezed my head for knowledge. I took a well deserved japanese soup and the waiting begun.

Happiness!! In a few weeks I got an email that said I passed the first test. Now it was “only” the 6.5 hour lab to pass.
