Back in January 2005, a former employee and friend of mine, Nick Parker, was awarded as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for his contributions to the same site where I haunted and got my MVP shortly before I joined Microsoft. He and another former employee and friend helped start and currently serve on the board of the Iowa .NET User Group in central Iowa.
Now that friend, Javier Lozano, has been awarded an MVP as well. These two guys have given talks around the Mid-west, such as at DevCon 2005 in Minneapolis and Omaha. Javier and his wife just recently had a baby, too, so it has been an exciting month worth of days for Javier!
So, keep an eye out for him in the developer forums and web sites and head over to his blog to check out more information about him and what he does.
Congratulations, Javier. You and Nick are both good fits for the MVP program…
…must’ve had a good teacher! 😉
