I just read this on Amy Sorokas’ blog and will just copy & paste cause it’s so cool!!
Stephen Walther was named a Software Legend by Microsoft today in recognition of his contribution to the Microsoft developer community as an author, trainer and developer. Microsoft selected Walther to join the Legends because of his best selling title, ASP.NET Unleashed, which many developers cite as one of the most comprehensive and accessible resources on ASP.NET available.
With this honor, Walther joins an impressive class of other Software Legends, including Billy Hollis, Jeffrey Richter, David Chappell, Rocky Lhotka, Alex Homer, Dave Sussman, Juval Lowy, and David Platt. The Software Legends program was created by Microsoft to recognize authors who have significantly contributed to the developer community and its understanding of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
Hooray. Congrats to Steve & Ruth. Ruth is Steve’s wife, has been my co-chair on the user group relations committee for INETA for the past year and is also Steve’s business partner and enabler in so many ways.
