Today I was renewed as an MVP for the tenth time and could not be happier. Over the past year I've been looking last XAML into the web stack and Microsoft has graciously moved me from a Data MVP over to an ASP.NET MVP. This doesn't mean I won't be sharing on Silverlight, WPF or data technologies; it's just a reflection of what I am working with now.
I want to thank everyone in the community for following me and reading my blog over past year...you're the reason I've been renewed again and I sincerely appreciate it!
I am proud to announce that Microsoft hasn't come to their senses yet and decided to renew my MVP status for another year. Being an MVP has been a great experience for me and I really appreciate the program. Five years into the program and I couldn't be happier.
While I haven't blogged about the MVP summit before, I have decided to mention a couple of things that have happened at the MVP summit. None of this is secret or private Microsoft information and I am not breaking any NDA's. These are just some reflections on a week on campus.
I just heard through the grapevine that Brendon Schwartz was awarded an MVP for his work with ASP.NET (and no doubt the Atlanta Community). Congratulations, you've earned it.
I have gotten through the hoops to be able to use the new MVP Logo. I have to say its a nice change from the old logo which was a bit antiquated. I really like it:
