I am very much thankful to all my readers who encourage me time to time to explore new avenues of technologies especially Microsoft Technologies. Also I am happy to become MVP for this year again, My ASP.NET MVP last year got renew up. I am also very much thankful for people in community for their valuable feedback and encouragement given in offline events. It was great experience for me to present for two days on Silverlight 2 & 3 in Tech.Ed 09 India and followed by Tech.Ed 09 on the Road events.

I am very much thankful to Abhishek Kant (MVP Lead for India), Abhishek Baxi (Microsoft), Mahesh Mitkari (Microsoft MVP from Pune), Dhaval Faria (Microsoft MVP from Mumbai), Suprotim Agarwal (Microsoft MVP and founder of www.dotnetcurry.com) and all my friends from Pune and Pune User Group.

I am also thankful to Mahesh Sabnis (MCT) who helped me in my 2-3 articles in WCF part of it. He help me a lot to learn WCF and WPF. Rather I learn .NET from him :)
