Last year on July 1st, I was anxiously waiting to hear if I had been awarded my first Microsoft MVP award for ASP.Net/IIS. Fast forward a year, and here I was waiting again to see if the ‘Congratulations 2014 Microsoft MVP!’ email was received. The MVP Award is for the previous year of community work in which you participated. For me, this included providing assistance via forums.iis.net, actively working with the Center for Internet Security on IIS related security benchmarks, doing my first speaking engagement for the Dallas asp.net User Group (thanks for the invitation Toi Wright – we’ll have to do it again), technical reviewer for a Microsoft IIS Administration training class, and blogging on my personal blog site and my company’s blog sites. I have been fairly active in the community but also know people that have been nominated that did not receive the award. I am pleased to announce that I have again received the award.
Once again, thank you Microsoft for the Award and I look forward to the upcoming year.
