Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Feels like the end of an era. For the last 4 years, I've proudly been a VB MVP.

Today, I found out that I am no longer in that category. I still love VB & VB.NET, but in all honesty, I don't use it nearly as much anymore. Almost all of my professional work is in C# these days.

So, ultimately it makes sense.

I'll miss hanging out with a lot of my VB homies at the MVP Summit though. There are some really good folks, both within Microsoft and in the extended VB community. It's been a real pleasure.

On a brighter note, it's also the beginning of a new era. :) This is my first year as a DirectX/XNA MVP (and my 5th year overall as an MVP.) I'm really very excited about being in this new category, and I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new people and being (even more) a part of the XNA community.

Here's to 2010!

Oh wow - so what's the deal - did they also ditch the C# MVP (was there a C# MVP?)

no no... they didn't get rid of it, I just switched over. The language MVPs are still there.
