Martin Cairns (blog | twitter), one of Purple Frog’s top consultants, has been awarded the coveted MCM (Microsoft Certified Master) certification in SQL Server 2008.

The MCM certification is one of the most demanding of all certifications, and requires an exceptionally high level of knowledge and ability in the subject area. With exams as well as a grueling hands-on lab assessment, it ensures the candidate has a mix of both a deep theoretical knowledge as well as the practical ability to implement it.

Martin is only the 7th person in the UK to achieve this certification, and only the 4th who doesn’t work for Microsoft.

We are obviously very proud of this achievement, and congratulate Martin on this very impressive award, as well as his hard work to achieve it.
