I'm a Microsoft Azure MVP


I'm proud to announce that I have been awarded being a Microsoft Azure MVP. Thank you so much to all those who inspired, supported, and nominated me.


Becoming a Microsoft Azure MVP

This past Sunday I was shocked when I opened my email to see this message waiting for me.




I was originally nominated for the award by another Microsoft MVP back in the middle part of 2020. At the time, the reason I was given was for all of my speaking, blogging, and podcasting in and around Microsoft Azure technologies. So I was somewhat aware that this could happen, but it was not for certian. Now that it has actually happened I almost don't know what to say. I feel very grateful to be recognized in the greater Microsoft .NET development / Azure community for my contributions over the past few years. To have my profile added among the other Azure MVPs is quite the good feeling.


What is a Microsoft MVP

With just over 3,000 awardees worldwide, Microsoft MVPs represent a highly select group of experts. MVPs share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others. They represent the diversity of today’s technical communities. MVPs are present in over 90 countries, in more than 40 languages, and across numerous Microsoft technologies. MVPs share a passion for technology, a willingness to help others, and a commitment to community. These are the qualities that make MVPs exceptional community leaders. MVPs’ efforts enhance people’s lives and contribute to our industry’s success in many ways. By sharing their knowledge and experiences, and providing objective feedback, they help people solve problems and discover new capabilities every day. MVPs are technology’s best and brightest.





What's Next

Really, not much changes for me. I still plan on contributing as much as I can. But again, I am honored to be a Microsoft MVP. It goes pretty well with being a Kentico Xperience and Kentico Kontent MVP as well.
