BizTalk Server MVP 2012

Posted: July 1, 2012  |  Categories: Uncategorized

Today I have received an e-mail from Microsoft with exciting news that I’ve been re-awarded the MVP title.


For me this is the third time to receive this award. The second year in the program has been an tremendous experience, which gave me the opportunity to do great things and meet inspiring and very skilled people. I have written and published a book, reviewed to other books, written dozen or so TechNet Wiki articles, answer many questions on the forum, build a couple of samples for the MSDN Gallery and had quite a few speaking engagements.
