Of course I was hoping, but back in my head I was knowing the accepted outcome.
Since I started as a Freelancer I did not much in the IBM Community and was slowly drifting away to other new challenges.
I would like to thank IBM to let me be in 2013 and 2014 an IBM Champion. I had a great time, did some interesting things. Spoke at several (inter) national user group events. Met lots of new people and increased my professional network a lot.
