Welcome back to Reconnect, the ongoing series where we catch up with former members of Microsoft MVP.

 

This week, we are lucky to be joined by none other than two-time titleholder Christopher Alcock

 

Hailing from the northwest of England, Christopher been working with the Microsoft Technology stack since the days of Visual Basic 3. For the past two decades, Christopher has focused on web technologies, working with Classic ASP and ASP.NET, along with SQL Server and IIS. 

 

Today, Christopher is a chief engineer and holds accreditations in ASP.NET, C#, XML, XSLT, ADO, Domain Driven Design, Unit Testing, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, NHibenate, and COM.

 

Since 2006, Christopher has been blogging every day with The Morning Brew, a daily round-up of the best .NET development resources.

 

With various links to software, community, and technical information, the blog serves as an important hub for software developers with more than 3000 entries over the years.

 

In addition to his committed online work, Christopher is also a regular in-person contributor to the UK technology scene with Liverpool Users of .NET, VBUG Manchester, DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper, Geekup, and Thoughtworks GeekNights.

 

And, when he finds the time, Christopher enjoys getting his camera out and practising amateur photography.
