Awarded Microsoft MVP

2. October 2007 14:13

Yesterday, I was notified that I have been awarded as a Microsoft MVP for 2008!  This is a significant privilege and I feel very honored to have even been considered.  My MVP award is for the category of Windows Server System - Connected System Developer.  If you are wondering why I fell under that category, the answer is WCF, which falls under the realm of Connected Systems.  It is certainly my favorite technology and I spend a lot of time trying to convince people that they can't live without it.  If you don't believe me, try having a conversation with me and count the number of times that WCF will come up in the first 60 seconds. :)

I would like to express my appreciation to Microsoft for recognizing my efforts in the community over the last year.  This has given me even more motivation to work toward promoting continued growth of our developer community across the area.  I am looking forward to coordinating some cool stuff with my fellow MVP, Todd Miranda.

For those of you that have no idea what the MVP award is all about, here is a link to the Microsoft MVP FAQs with more detailed information.  In short, it is essentially recognition of exceptional contribution to the developer community over the course of the previous year.

About Me

I'm a passionate software developer and advocate of the Microsoft .NET platform.  In my opinion, software development is a craft that necessitates a conscious effort to continually improve your skills rather than falling into the trap of complacency.  I was also awarded as a Microsoft MVP in Connected Systems in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
