Today I have received an e-mail from Microsoft with exciting news that my MVP status has been renewed again!
For me this is the fourth time to receive this award. The third year in the program has been an awesome experience, which gave me the opportunity to do great things and meet inspiring, very skilled people. I have had some interesting speaking engagement, which were fun to do and were very fulfilling. I learned a lot through speaking thanks to the community and fellow MVP’s. I was able to share my experiences through these speaking gigs and other channels like this blog, MSDN Gallery, Forums and above all the TechNet Wiki.
I would like to thank:
- My MVP leads William Jansen.
- BizTalk Product Team, Kent Brown, Guru Venkataraman, Karthik Bharathy, Ed Price, Nitin Mehrota, Mandi Ohlinger, Allesandro Teglia, Paolo Salvatori, Clemens Vasters and all other Microsoft employees involved.
