What you will have to do?
1. Think of a new useful custom analysis rule and implement it.
2. Write a blog post that describes the practice, which it is enforcing and share the rule’s xml file.
You have your rule and post ready, what’s next?
Simply email your rule to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us link to a blog post describing the rule. Once we check the rule we will give you a free SQL Enlight For SSMS license.
