Renew as a Microsoft MVP

Leave a comment

Today, while processing my email on this beautiful Canada Day, I was happy to find my MVP renewal among the many messages in my inbox.

mvp-2020For sixteen consecutive years, I am the proud recipient of the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award from Microsoft. MVP status is awarded to credible technology experts who have demonstrated their deep commitment to helping others make the most of their technology, voluntarily sharing their passion and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with the community. As usual, I am receiving this award mainly for my outstanding contribution as host of the Visual Studio Talk Show podcast. This French-language podcast, where we discuss software architecture, began in November 2004 (Yes! 16 years ago). With the help of co-host Guy Barrette, we publish a show with a French-spoken technology expert on a monthly basis.

Here is a listing of the podcasts we published lately:
