with 5 comments

I just got this award a few days ago. Can you imagine? Me ,an MVP in Biztalk !! I was absolutely gobsmacked to receive it and am over the moon now. Its going to take me a while to come down.

Here’s an excerpt from the email

Dear Santosh Benjamin, 

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2008 Microsoft® MVP Award! The MVP Award is our way to say thank you for promoting the spirit of community and improving people’s lives and the industry’s success every day. We appreciate your extraordinary efforts in BizTalk technical communities during the past year.

and here’s a picture of the certificate.

My MVP Award

I was informed that it was not only the blog but also the CodePlex projects (BizUnitExtensions and Project Solution Kits) that were noticed. 

I have learned a tremendous amount from the folk who hang out on the newsgroups and tirelessly respond to all sorts of questions and while it will be a long time before i can really be a part of their ranks, this blog and the codeplex stuff have been my attempt at giving back something to the community and so It’s absolutely awesome to get this and i must thank the Biztalk community for all the answers to my newsgroup posts and the feedback to the posts here and at the old DotNetJunkies blog.

I hope i can do justice to this award and provide lots more useful information over the next year and beyond.
