Late on Friday afternoon I got a fairly unexpected email with the title Congratulations 2010 Microsoft MVP. I say unexpected because while I knew I was nominated I thought it was the December rotation and I hadn’t received the usual request for information from Microsoft. So now I am an MVP for ASP.NET!
It’s a real inspiration to get this award and to be honest considering some of the people I know who are current and former MVPs its also quite humbling.
Anyways, a quick bit about the Microsoft MVP award. The Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) program is a recognition program that is in place to recognize and reward those individuals who have been identified by individuals (peers, Microsoft staff, etc.) as experts in their technology field and global contributors to the technology.
