Congratulations to all the Microsoft MVPs of the Year!
Two of the MVPs are based right here in Arizona.
Joseph Guadagno was awarded MVP of the Year for C#. Joe has been an ongoing contributor to the community through is efforts with the Southeast Valley DotNet User Groug (SEVDNUG), Desert Code Camp, AZGiveCamp, and as President of INETA North America (just to name a few).
Joe works full time (like most of us) and still manages to contribute so much to the community. Congratulations to Joe for being recognized by Microsoft and by his peers a “leader by example” among MVPs.
Scott Cate was awarded MVP of the Year for ASP.NET. Scott is well known in the Arizona community. Scott is a long-time user group leader, and is the founder of AZGroups.org, a site dedicated to listing all the technical user groups (regardless of platform) in Arizona as a service to developers. Last year, Scott was awarded the title – Microsoft Regional Director. Scott has been quite active in the southwest region of the USA promoting the Windows Phone Unleashed events. He is a regular speaker at many technical events locally, nationally, even internationally.
Despite his busy schedule, Scott is devoted family man – always beaming with pride over his children. Kudos to Scott for being recognized with such a high honor (though no surprise for those who know him).
