As the snowflakes gently settle (in theory because here in Porto, there is no snow!) and the jingle bells echo in the distance, we find ourselves at the magical juncture of the year where warmth (in theory again because it is cold), joy, and togetherness take center stage. It’s that time again when twinkling lights and festive cheers fill the air — yes, Christmas is here, and a New Year is just around the corner!
Thanks in advance for all the support and encouragement given throughout this year. We hope that the next year will be filled with new, distinct contributions. We will promise that we will continue to share knowledge, hoping that they can help someone.
May your holiday season be filled with moments of laughter, love, and shared joy with family and friends. As we bid farewell to 2023, we look forward to the adventures that await us in 2024 and remember the sage advice: “Start using proper names from day one!“. With a touch of intergalactic flair, we send our wishes for a Stellar Holiday Season and an Out-of-This-World New Year.
Let’s continue to reach for the stars and dream beyond the limits of the universe. May the Force be with you!
Greetings from Diogo, Luis, and Sandro!

We wish you a Merry Christmas We wish you a Merry Christmas We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We are entering the 3rt pandemic year. We are in a better position, the vaccination is helping minimize the impact of this pandemic, but there is still a long way to go. This makes his holiday season even more important because we never know what tomorrow will be, so on this Christmas, I hope you all can spend time with your close family and friends in the safest way you can. And if you are like me, with three young kids, then it’s all about creating happy memories that will last a lifetime, and we need it more than ever!
And once again, my sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers, friends, customers, partners, coworkers, my amazing Integration Team at DevScope (Pedro Almeida and Diogo Formosinho – you guys rock!), to all Microsoft Integration and Azure Community (BizTalk Server, Logic Apps, API Management, Service Bus, and so on), MSFT Product Groups, all the Portuguese Communities, my MVP “family” and of course to my beautiful family.
Thanks in advance for all the support and encouragement given throughout another year – 11 years as MVP. I couldn’t make it without you guys!. It was, once again, an incredible year for me, on both a personal and professional level, and I hope that the next will be a year filled with new challenges. I promise that I will continue to share knowledge, hoping to help someone.
May this festive season sparkle and shine, may all of your wishes and dreams come true, and may the new year be made of great happiness. Merry Christmas to you and your entire family, and a happy new year!
HO HO HO, yes, it is that magical time of the year again!… More than other years, this year Christmas is about spending time with close family, the small number possible and family members that you are in contact with every day to due this COVID 19 pandemic. It’s about creating happy memories that will last a lifetime, and we need it more than ever!
This was without a doubt a challenging year for everyone, a year not to forget but to learn and remember, and hoping to start 2021 with a blank page for us to write a better story.
To all my readers, friends, coworkers, customer, partners, to all Microsoft Integration and Azure Community (BizTalk Server, Logic Apps, API Management, Service Bus, and so on), MSFT Product Groups, all the Portuguese Communities, my MVP “family” and of course to my family, my sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This year I had the privilege of receiving a surprise Christmas gift from good friends that intentionally or unintentionally (I believe it was intentional) combine two of my passions/hobbies:
Wine enthusiasm and the passion for exploring and taste new wines (you can find more in my Instagram account)
And my blog.
So I got this fantastic Blog (Black Label) 2016 Red Wine. Thanks for this amazing gift! No need to mention names. You know who you are
All the best for the coming year, and most importantly, stay safe!
