Very special thanks to all my reader I really appreciate the 91,013 visits to the blog. 2011 was a very interesting year, for the first time:

  • I began to write articles for Portuguese Community Magazines
  • I began to make public presentations for Portuguese Communities
  • And I began to contribute in MSDN Code Gallery
  • I had the opportunity to give to my readers 7 e-copies of two BizTalk books

And of course, not forgetting my blog: 57 new posts in 2011.
