Welcome back to Reconnect, the biweekly series that catches up with former MVPs and their current activities. 

 

This week we are thrilled to be joined by none other than eight-time titleholder Tony Champion! Hailing from Texas, Tony is a software architect with over 20 years of experience developing with Microsoft technologies. 

 

As the owner and lead software architect of Champion DS, Tony remains active in the latest trends and technologies, creating custom solutions on Microsoft platforms. His client list includes multiple industries and includes companies such as Schlumberger, Microsoft, Boeing, MLB, and Chevron/Philips. 

 

Tony describes his passion as creating new and engaging software that can span platforms, devices, and architectures. From XAML and C# to HTML and Javascript, Tony believes in using the right tools for the job and delivering a user experience and not just a piece of software.

 

Tony is still an active participant in the community as an international speaker, published author and blogger, and as an MVP Reconnect member.

 

Tony simply describes himself as someone who has been coding for a long time and experienced both the highs and lows in this industry. Moreover, he loves to teach and jumps at the opportunity to share his knowledge.

 

When he’s not working or coding, Tony can normally be found with a guitar in hand.
