For an 11th year in a row I have the pleasure to receive the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award!
Who are Microsoft MVPs ?
Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the “bleeding edge” and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies. They have very deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems. MVPs are driven by their passion, community spirit and their quest for knowledge. Above all and in addition to their amazing technical abilities, MVPs are always willing to help others – that’s what sets them apart.
I am now part of the Visual Studio and Development Technologies expertise (coming from Windows Platform Development) which makes much more sense to me.
As written exactly 1 year ago my focus shifted back to web technologies and the plan was to focus on Angular and TypeScript. This is exactly what I did and it worked out pretty well:
Through my Angular Academy in Canada I did 34 Angular workshops in 2016, I have now trained more than 450 developers to this awesome framework!
2017 will be no different, still sharing my passion for web technologies, I plan to work intermittently for 6-7 months and visit as many cities and companies as I can. The other half of the year will be dedicated to just enjoy life, that’s my work-life balance 😉
Happy New Year!
