I am an MVP once again!

Hooray!  I was awarded the Microsoft MVP title again, for my efforts in the Client App Dev technical communities (i.e. WPF).  Thanks a lot, Microsoft! 😀


Back when I started exploring WPF/Avalon I didn’t know anyone else who was into it.  My first year or so of WPFing was a solo adventure.  Now, just a couple years later, I am deeply engaged in a growing community of smart, dedicated, funny, accomplished WPF developers.  It’s nice to know that I might have helped contribute a bit toward building that great community, and I hope it continues to grow.

    Josh you rule! 🙂

    Your posts and articles are a gold mine for the WPF community.
    A lot of people became full time WPF developers because of them.

    In my opinion, you also deserve a WPF Guru title.

    Congratulations Josh. Sigh – another year I’m not an MVP. Only kidding man – you really deserve this award. Although I think it should be RAMVPWNS or Really Amazingly Most Valuable Professional Who Never Sleeps.

  18. Josh Smith says:

    Hey Pete! Thanks a lot! I must admit, I sleep… 🙂

  19. peteohanlon says:

    You sleep? What, once every 4 years?;-> Is it true you also take sustenance from the air itself?
