At Microsoft we like to drive special attention to people that do great work in the developer community, as you might know the MVP title is a recognition of this effort.
Since yesterday we have two new MVPs in Belgium, of which one in the developer space.
Therefore, I would like to congratulate Maarten Balliauw for being awarded MVP in the ASP/ASP.NET category.
Maarten has been working a lot around ASP.NET MVC lately, of which he also released the first book on the subject (as far as I know it was the first one at the time): ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Quickly.
Next to that, Maarten’s blog is a fantastic resource. He does depth posts around ASP.NET MVC, Azure, VSTS, PHP, OpenXML and much more. Congratulations Maarten!
We would also like to congratulate the MVPs that have been re-awarded. You have been doing great work!
