I was awarded for the 5th year (not concurrent with a 3 month gap between the first and second years) as a Microsoft MVP. I was moved from the Data Platform Development group to Visual C# and could not be more happy about the move. I have a lot of friends both in the C# MVP group as well as in Microsoft on the language and Visual Studio teams. Looking forward to working with these great people for the next year and beyond.
It has been a great journey so far being on my 3rd MVP group: SQL then Data Platform and now C#. I want to thanks everyone in the community that listen to the Deep Fried Bytes podcast, read my blog, attended my presentations and finally follow me on twitter and other social media networks.
