The Tallan CodeOff is an annual (*) event here at Tallan to challenge the development staff. At the start of the contest, a simple programming task is emailed out to the participants, who then have an hour to complete it.

This month, Microsoft awarded 143 exceptional technical community leaders with the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) title and re-awarded 764 MVPs worldwide. Tallan is thrilled to announce that Lenni Lobel has been recognized as an MVP in SQL Server!
According to the Microsoft MVP Award Program Blog, there are more than 100 million social and technical community members, but only a small portion are selected to be recognized as MVPs. Members of this highly select group of experts are not Microsoft employees; they voluntarily share their passion and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others.
In addition to his role as Principal Consultant, Lenni is currently working on the new edition of Tallan’s SQL Server book, “Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2012″ (O’Reilly Media) and speaks regularly at industry conferences and user groups around the country.
Thank you and congratulations to Lenni for his commitment…
