And now for some local Florida developer community pimping. Jacksonville, Florida just got two new Microsoft MVP’s in the most recent award cycle: Vinay Ahuja (C#) and John Holliday (SharePoint Portal Server… soon to be MOSS). If they are new folks to you, let me have the pleasure of briefly introducing both of them.
Vinay is very active in the local Florida developer community, both in a leadership role of the JAXDUG , the man behind the curtain for all the SIG’s under JAXDUG, and frequent speaker on the regional code camp circuit. I’ve picked up more Visual Studio tips & tricks from Vinay’s talks than anywhere else. Vinay has already posted his MVP profile .
John and I co-founded the Jacksonville Office Geeks , a Office Developer SIG in Jacksonville. He is also active in the Florida developer community. I’m very fond of the work he has done (and is doing) with CodeSmith in the context of SharePoint. John, too, has posted his MVP profile .
I also wanted to give a shout out to a MVP retread, Darrin Bishop . Welcome back to the SharePoint MVP world from your little break! :)
Congrats to all three of you for well deserved awards.
