In the early hours of this morning I received an email from Microsoft:
Dear David Gardiner, Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2015 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.
It’s an award not for exceptional technical knowledge as such, but rather for “community leaders..sharing .. with others”. I’m thrilled to receive it, and hope it will help me to do even more for the developer community in the future.
Next up I’m hoping to attend the MVP Summit in Seattle in early November. It will be great to meet many of the other MVP award recipients in person (and hopefully line up some speakers for the Adelaide .NET User Group).
It’s going to be busy over the next few weeks getting ready!
