ET's VS and TFS World Fascinating tidbits about VS and TFS and .NET (well I hope...)

Well... it's been a pretty crazy year! here are a few of the highlights ... around the world (literally) in 65 days, 8 countries, 100,000 air miles, speaker at Devteach for the second year in a row, VSTS MVP for the second year in a row, speaker at the first Montreal Code camp, 15 year at EDS and last but probably the best, 20th year with my lovely wife.  I don't know where I would be without her...

pfeeeww ;-) man I'm tired after reading this again.  So what does next year look like... Well I'll probably speak at Devteach again this year, I'm going to the MVP summit, I'm hopefully going to do a 1 day hands-on-lab on Team System (BYOLaptop kind) I'm still working on the details.  Community involvement wherever possible. Hopefully less travel to be closer to my family.

I'm also going to try to do some blog series on TFS with remains one of my primary interests... :-)

I'd like to give special thanks for Guy, Mario, Jeffbe, Aaron, Steve and Wayne for being there when to going got tough and sticking with me and believing in me.  These are the best years career wise and it's in large part because of you guys, it hopefully can only get better.  I'd also like to thank the User Group members for their always great discussion about development and architecture and for their friendship hopefully we continue this in 2007.

If it wasn't for my family to get back to it wouldn't be worth it... :-)

Update: After a deadly headlock by the Mad Mexican I feel "compelled" to add him to the highlights of the year, I saw him at DevTeach and I must say that was very funny.  Thanks for the laughs D'arcy.
