Renewed as a Microsoft MVP Again!

Today I received the following e-mail from Toby Richards, General Manager of Community & Online Support at Microsoft:

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2011 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in ASP.NET/IIS technical communities during the past year.

The Microsoft MVP Award provides us the unique opportunity to celebrate and honor your significant contributions and say "Thank you for your technical leadership."

It's not the first time I received the award, but I was just as thrilled as the previous times. It's a great honour to be part of the Microsoft MVP Community. I really look forward to another year working with fellow MVPs and the people at Microsoft.

To the people at Microsoft who made this possible: thank you very much.

Where to Next?

Hi Rahul,

Not sure what you mean. There is no MVP logo on the Contact page. There is one on the About page, and it's a current one...

Hi ankur,

You may want to get a copy of my book Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB:

That should get you prepared for making money with ASP.NET.

I became a fan of Wrox books after reading your book "Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB". I wish all beginner books were so easy for newbies to grasp something as big as ASP.Net.

The Talk Back feature is not meant for technical questions that are not directly related to this article.

When you post a comment, you have to provide your name and the comment. Your e-mail address is optional and you only need to provide it if you want me to contact you. It will not be displayed along with your comment. I got sick and tired of the comment spam I was receiving, so I have protected this page with a simple calculation exercise.
