Thanks Don Burnett

“It’s All Good!”

I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Don Burnett, Microsoft MVP. Don Burnet enjoyed designing lessons for our Connected Car Advanced Transportation courses.  He shared his knowledge generously with both hands.

The list of programs and architecture that Don mastered in his 20+ years experience is dazzling. I added up all of the lessons I would have to take to learn and calculated that I would need two or three lifetimes to catch up with Don Burnett!

Donald Burnett, you will be missed!
