One of the things I’ve really enjoyed about blogging and engaging with the development and security communities is some of the opportunities it’s opened up simply by doing thing I really enjoy. I’m talking about opportunities like the MVP award, joining up with the Friends of Redgate and numerous other perks and rewards that seem to pop up out of the woodwork.
I’m very happy to now be joining the ASPInsiders:
The who now?!
The ASPInsiders is a select group of international professionals who have demonstrated expertise in ASP.NET technologies and who provide valuable, early feedback on related developing technologies and publications to their peers, the Microsoft ASP.NET team and others.
Is it just me, or does that sound a little familiar?
If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them…
Not quite, the ASPInsiders weren’t sent to a military court for a crime they didn’t commit (at least not to my knowledge). Instead, it includes a veritable who’s who of luminaries from the .NET community, MVPs and many names within Microsoft you’ll recognise. And somehow, now me.
My hope is that this provides more opportunity for me to both develop my own understanding of ASP.NET as well as provide feedback from the community to help shape the future of the product. Clearly my focus tends to be more security-centric and indeed there are a number of areas I’d love to contribute to in this area. Of course along with all that, I really want to keep hearing from you what you love, hate or are indifferent about in the framework so as always, comments, tweets and phone calls are most welcome and I may have a bit more of an opportunity to make a difference now.
