Help the DVLUP Challenge: Go ahead, rate my app!

The DVLUP program has an interesting challenge: Go ahead, rate my app!

This challenge wants your app to encourage feedback. Yeah just feedback, similar to an article I wrote about a year ago for Windows Style apps. The interesting thing is that you don’t have to do that much. The challenge already contains code you can copy/paste.

But wait, there’s more, of course we want the words and sentences that appear in the dialogs to be localized, don’t we? I would love to add this to my P | Cast app. But my app is localized in a lot of different languages.

So please join me and help improve the Helperslib project, based on the code that’s provided by DVLUP, improved and made available on NuGet by @SimonDarksideJ. I already added Dutch to the Git Repository. Why don’t you add your native languages?

Awarded with the MVP Award

Yesterday I received an e-mail from Microsoft.

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2010 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Silverlight technical communities during the past year.

It feels good to be awarded for the work in the community in the past year. I’ve been blogging here and answered questions on the Silverlight.net forums. Also I got more involved in the local community by being one of the founders of the Dutch Silverlight & Expression Insiders User Group. And specially last Tuesday and Wednesday, you could find me at the Ask The Experts stand during the DevDays 2010.’

Most of all, I like being involved in the Silverlight community. I’m very addicted to Silverlight so I guess the future will be at least as much Silverlight community involvement as last year.
