I would like to thank BDotnet (Bangalore .NET) User Group and its members ( Lohith , Vic , Karthik , Kamlesh , Vinod Kumar , Vijay Raj , Chaitra Nagaraj , Manas , Amar , Ujjwal , Praveen , Anil , Nishanth and other members ) for giving me a platform to present and get me more involved with the community.
I made my first presentation on Windows Phone development in January 2013 UG Meet which would not have been possible without Lohith and Vic and later was involved in more BDotnet UG Meets and Webinars. The BDotnet core team provided the necessary guidance and support for the same.
Special thanks to Biplab Paul and Tanmay Kapoor from Microsoft for their support during this nomination process and follow up.
Not to forget my other online community friends like Mayur , Vikram , Anil Mahadev , Kunal Chowdhury , Dhananjay kumar and Tony John with whom I have been interacting with for quite some time .
I would like to take this opportunity to each and every one who helped me to achieve this now. Apologies if I missed anyone in the above list.
Great New Year Gift for me from Microsoft and am feeling really proud and excited it.
