Happy New Year 2009 and MVP again!

Hello all, and Happy New Year! I have just received today the e-mail from Microsoft awarding me the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) title again (this is the sixth one since 2004!). I am very grateful and excited about this award and along with feedback that I receive from people it really encourages me to keep devoting quite of my spare time to the community of developers extending Visual Studio, mainly with add-ins.

Some weeks ago I took some days off and I got inspired those days with four (yes, 4) new initiatives or projects that I would accomplish in 2009 to help developers of add-ins for Visual Studio, apart from writing a new bunch of MZ-Tools Articles Series and answering questions in the MSDN forum about Visual Studio Extensibility. I will announce them in the next weeks or months as they move from a “proof of concept” state to something deliverable.
