In April 2006 I received a Microsoft MVP award for WPF. It was mainly due to some popular articles I wrote on CodeProject when WPF was brand new, and for the user group presentations I was doing. At one point, I think I managed a user group presentation every month for a year. When working at Readify, I also put together and taught a two-day WPF training course.
I kept receiving the award each year until this year, when my re-award date came and went, and I noticed I'm no longer an MVP. I guess that's fair. After all, my last post about WPF was a 18 months ago when I blogged about how nothing has improved in WPF for the last 6 years. I'm probably not the best candidate for being a WPF MVP anymore.
The BizSpark membership for Octopus Deploy is coming to an end soon too, though, so this leaves me wondering: what am I going to do when I don't have an MSDN subscription anymore? Am I supposed to pay for this stuff?! :-)
