Sibers has updated its status to a Microsoft certified partner, which is supported by a nice glass tablet from Microsoft saying “for your commitment to creating and delivering innovative customer solutions and services based on Microsoft technologies, we proudly recognize your dedication to excellence” and signed by Steven A.Ballmer and Allison L.Watson.
Such a pleasant present arrived on the day of Key-Soft birthday (editor note: long time ago Sibers was named Key-Soft) and marks the efforts of a whole Sibers team of .NET developers on creating a wide range of high-quality applications. We congratulate our .NET department and its team leaders Alexey Malinovsky and Roman Sitnikov with the achievement. The certificate resulted from our Microsoft team obtaining 23 certificates of 8 types on different technologies:
- PRO: Designing and Developing Enterprise Applications using Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5;
- PRO: Designing and Developing ASP.NET Applications using Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5;
- TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Communication Foundation Application Development;
- TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, ADO.NET Application Development;
- TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development;
- TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, ASP.NET Application Development;
- TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 – Windows-based Client;
- TS: Microsoft .NET Framework – Application Development Foundation.
With the official message complete, let me disclose some confidential information. It turned out that the award package from Microsoft was a bit buggy Not that we expected it, but there was an awkward feeling in the air. There were two glass tablets in the package and one of them was through the looking glass, i.e. mirror-printed — yes, you should understand it literally. So, the congratulatory text looked like this:
“evitavonni gnireviled dna gnitaerc ot tnemtimmoc ruoy roF
secivres dna snoitulos remotsuc
ezingocer ylduorp ew ,seigolonhcet tfosorciM no desab
.ecnellecxe ot noitacided ruoy”
Nevertheless, the fact of possessing such a rarity makes us happy. This tablet is unique among thousands analogous (we hope, Microsoft doesn’t produce this bug with every other tablet), and due to its uniqueness our company has its own spirit!
