In my MVP Summit recap, I mentioned that I want to help contribute to the docs on docs.microsoft.com, including Visual Basic. Many people know that I’ve focused on C# the most in the .NET stack, followed by PowerShell. VB.NET didn’t get as much focus career-wise for me, as I had a rocky start with it and really fell for C#. However, I will forever have a soft spot for Visual Basic. But why? This is my story.
Last week, I was out at the Microsoft MVP Summit in Redmond, Washington. As many people know, I’ve been a Microsoft fan all of my life, so going out to the main campus is like a pilgrimage to me. I made sure to wear some of my MVP gear on the flight out, as it’s a good way to find other MVPs. While there were none flying from my starting spot, I met up with a bunch of MVPs – Azure, Outlook, Visual Studio – in Detroit.
