I got an email yesterday congratulating and welcoming me as a Microsoft C# MVP for 2010. I tweeted about it but had a hard time coming up with words (140 chars) that expressed my gratitude towards the Virginia, Maryland, and DC developer community. This award would not have happened without their support.
I moved to the region in late 2007 and I was saddened to leave behind a lot of the communities that I had helped to build in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. But, I was excited and impressed with the large number of developer communities that thrive in the region and the quality and professionalism of the leaders that run these communities. As a developer and active participant of many of these developer communities I encourage you to exploit these invaluable resources of knowledge and growth.
A special thanks to,
Washington, DC - District Of Columbia Developer’s Community (DCDNUG)
Maryland – Central Maryland Association of .NET Professionals (CMAP)
Maryland – Rockville .NET User’s Group (ROCKNUG)
Virginia – Capital Area .NET User’s Group (CAPAREA)
Virginia – ALT.NET DC Chapter (ALTNETDC)
Virginia – Richmond Code Camp (RichCC)
