Ready or not it is time once more to Reconnect! For this week’s edition of the series, we are joined by none other than two-time MVP recipient Hannes Preishuber!


Hailing from Austria, Hannes is an author, speaker, coach, and business leader. Hannes, rewarded twice for his expertise in ASP and ASP.NET, remains active in the Microsoft community by running the Vienna Meetup. He counts accreditations like MCSD, MCSE, MCAD.NET, MCSD.NET, and MCT to his name.


Hannes puts this varied tech experience to good use as the chief executive officer of ppedv, a Microsoft Learning Partner. While the training centre - which teaches C#, WPF, Windows Server, SharePoint, .net, Angular, JavaScript, and SQL - has been forced online due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Hannes says the transition from 12 physical educational centres to the virtual realm has been relatively seamless thanks to Microsoft.


“[We have implemented] a completely new backend and frontend line of business. We use Blazor and ASP.NET Webforms to get the process to code within a short time. As a former ASP.NET Webforms MVP, Blazor brings a lot of productivity back. I still miss some tooling like scaffolding and features like hot reload, but in summary for me, Blazor is the best LOB tool in the market. Well done Microsoft!”


Hannes, who received the MVP award from 2003-2005, recalls fondly his time in the programme with events like TechEd and PDC Session. He recommends all new MVPs to “make connections, meet people, and exchange your ideas.”


“MVP was a lot for me with friends and connections to product groups. To see Microsoft connecting us former MVPs is a value and an honor,” Hannes says.
