Dr. WPF suggested in a WPF forum thread that I hand out Brownies as awards. I haven’t made a badge for the recipients to display on their Web sites yet, but I think these awards are overdue. So here comes the first batch of Brownies for those individuals (sorry no companies) who have made significant contributions or discoveries within the WPF community (or in some cases did something that just make you go Wow!). They are in no particular order.
- Dr. WPF as of right now he is the lead answerer in the WPF Forum over the past 30 days with 116 answers. This also makes him one of the top 10 answerers in ALL of the MSDN forums. This is even more significant when you consider he is the ONLY person in the top 10 who is not a moderator (moderators can mark their replies to a question as an answer). So there you’ve got a Brownie, hope you’re happy now.
- Casey Chesnut for WPF Augmented Reality…that just rocks on so many levels.
- Josh Smith for writing about 5000 WPF articles on Codeproject.com
- Jeremiah Morrill for taking WPF/Win32 interop to a HOLE NUVA LEVEL!
That’s it for right now. Don’t feel slighted because I didn’t get you this time around. There are others that I want to name but I don’t want to make the list too long. On another note, I mentioned that in addition to Brownies, I would be handing out cookies for people who could be nicknamed captain obvious.
The first recipient of this dubious honor is none other than me. I made a big deal about the Delegating Command when a similar solution had already been blogged and talked about extensively. This will be the first and last Cookie handed out by me.
Congratulations to the first batch of Brownies, I will get your badges to you in short order.
