I am very happy to announce that yesterday I have been added to a very elite club: the Microsoft MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) Club. If you don't believe me check it out for yourself: MVP Profile. I will also like to congratulate a coworker, Brian Peek, for also becoming an MVP.
So what's an MVP you might ask? Who better than Microsoft itself to explain it:
"Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) are exceptional technical community leaders from around the world who are awarded for voluntarily sharing their high quality, real world expertise in offline and online technical communities. Microsoft MVPs are a highly select group of experts that represents the technical community's best and brightest, and they share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others.
MVPs represent a broad spectrum of Microsoft product users. They occupy many different professions including accountants, teachers, artists, engineers and technologists. MVPs reside in over 90 countries, represent 30 different languages, and cover more than 90 Microsoft technologies.
MVPs tend to be early adopters of new technology and actively communicate their experiences to millions of other technology users. Through their extensive community activity, MVPs help others solve problems and discover new capabilities, helping people get the maximum value from their technology."
I've been meaning to add my picture and my certification logo on this page, but I haven't had the time to do it. I think now it's a very good excuse for adding them.
A BIG THANK YOU to Joe Healey, Jonathan Goodyear, Jose Manners, John Papa, the MVP team, and every crazy folk that had the balls to let me speak at an event.
