We're going to the finals!

I'm very proud to say that Digipede has been chosen as a finalist for Microsoft's ISV Innovation Partner of the Year! The awards will be handed out in July at the Worldwide Partner Conference in Denver. We attend every year, so I was going to be there anyway...but now I'm really, really excited!
Innovation Partner of the Year FinalistMicrosoft has hundreds of thousands of partners, and thousands attend the WWPC. I believe around 2,000 applied for Partner of the Year; it is an extreme honor to be named one of the 3 finalists along with Fractal Edge and Tecnologia de Gerencia Comercial (from Brasil--after all, these are Worldwide partners!).

We've worked hard to extend the Microsoft stack in innovative ways, and it is great to see them acknowledge and appreciate it. We couldn't have come this far without lots of help from our friends throughout Microsoft's organization.

By the way, if you are an ISV developing on the Microsoft platform, you should absolutely join the Partner Program and attend WWPC. More than any other event, it can help you learn how to succeed in the partner ecosystem. Microsoft works hard to help its partners--but you have to work hard at it, too. This is the perfect place to learn how to do that...

...and maybe see us pick up an award while you're at it!
