Well, like it or not, I'm back from my holidays.

This year the summer in Uruguay has been great so far for those of us who enjoy outdoor activities, so it's really tempting to take a few more days off ;)

Following a smart recommendation of my MVP Lead, I'm opening a new "mirror" blog in spanish, so from now on, every article will be published in both, English and Spanish (duh!).

Thus, at the end of each article a cross-reference link to the same article (in the remaining language) will be available. In the following days, I will be publishing in the new blog a selection of articles from the archive translated to spanish.

I will also be modifying a little bit the design of this blog, specially the links section, so stay tune.


Article in Spanish (this is an example).

Checking my inbox I was extremely happy to find an email from Microsoft notifying me that I have been honored with the "Most Valuable Professional" award for XNA/DirectX.

It's really motivating to know that all my technical contributions to, and support for, the XNA Community is recognized, welcome and appreciated.

Thanks to those of you who nominated me for the award, to those of you who read this blog, to those of you who ask me technical questions via email, to those of you who invite me to participate in XNA-related events, and last but not least to Microsoft for granting me this great honour. [... background music starts to play indicating that my speech must end ...]

This year I'll continue to post articles, submit recommendations for XNA through MS Connect (nope, you're not getting rid of me!), participate in technical/community forums, and help other members of the Community to spread the word that XNA rules!
