MVP Renewal Day

Leave a comment

Microsoft is now announcing the MVPs (Most Valuable Professional) in one annual reward cycle in an aim to recognize their community in one, big way. Today, I found my MVP renewal amongst the other emails coming in.

For fifteen consecutive years, I am the proud recipient of the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award from Microsoft.

The Microsoft MVP Award is a unique opportunity to honor technology experts who have shown a deep commitment to innovation, and have made outstanding contributions to their communities. This might be through speaking engagements, creating content, providing expert feedback or organizing events – but most importantly, the award is given to those who are passionate about technology, and have great community spirit!

According to the MVP blog, to bring the program closer together, they reduced the number of awardees from 4000 to 2600. I’m happy to be included once again!
