Many thanks to Microsoft, and everyone who has attended my talks, read my articles, and my blog, and put up with my corny sense of humor. I'd also like to thank my clients who saw value in my being an MVP, and supported my community efforts by offering me flexibility to do so.
I am pleased to report that I have been renewed as Microsoft MVP in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server competency, with secondary competencies of C#, ASP.NET and SQL Server.
This is my 5th consecutive MVP award, and nothing in my career has been as rewarding (in more ways than just financial), than being an MVP. Being a MOSS MVP, is an incredible experience as well. The product team is just incredible, and the product itself is fantastic. I am quite convinced that SharePoint is here to stay and will continue to increase it's dominance with future versions of SharePoint and Office.
This coming year I intend to do a few trainings and conferences (Last to last year, I did 16, and got totally burnt out - so last year I took a total break!), and continue to blog good content. I intend to get extremely dev centric on SharePoint, and address some of the key points that nobody has with SP .. specifically, SilverLight and WCF.
Being an MVP is an incredibly rewarding experience. If you aren’t striving for it, you’re seriously missing out.
Once again, thanks to .. umm .. basically the whole world.
PS: I'll be at the summit on Tue and Wed - please come by and Say Hi.
