Secondly, I’m happy to announce that Microsoft has awarded me with an MVP (8th consecutive year) in the Visual C++ category, therefore I’d like to thank God, my wife (for all of her patience & understanding), community & fellow developers and Microsoft and the MVP Program.
I’ve been supporting technical communities since 2002 when I was still in Venezuela and it’s been a great pleasure and disinterested task ever since. The best satisfaction one can get is “Thank you, your articles have helped me a lot”, so besides the benefits of the program, it’s all about sharing the knowledge and helping others.
I’ve been blessed in many different ways, and I do consider that being part of this program is another blessing and such a great opportunity. I was initially an ASP.NET MVP (ASP.NET Insider) but then I realized that Visual C++ & Native code have much more to offer, so I decided to go back to my roots… Native Windows Development and here I am
Before any managed code/framework was available we had C/C++ which it’s been portable for ages, bleeding-edge applications, games, drivers & highly intensive-performing applications can only be written in C++ so it’s a pleasure to evangelize people about the beauty of the language & its capabilities.
My commitment for this year is to produce material around the upcoming technologies in Windows 8, so please stay tuned!
Once again thank you all!
