Microsoft has in February 2004 awarded Matevž Gačnik with a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) status in the area of XML. Matevž is the 15th person in the world to achive this status. The MVP status is awarded to outstanding professionals in Microsoft technical communities. Matevž has become one of the few in the world having both the Regional Director status and the MVP award.
In April 2004, Matevž was in Redmond helping the product development team, which is designing a new generation of System.Xml namespace. We are proud that some of our ideas will get shipped in the next major release of this promising technology.
