What is an MVP
Microsoft describes it as:
““Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are community leaders who’ve demonstrated an exemplary commitment to helping others get the most out of their experience with Microsoft technologies. They share their exceptional passion, real-world knowledge, and technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.”
I want to first thank Microsoft for considering my Azure contributions community worthy of recognition. The very fact that Microsoft dedicates resources to recognize outside contributors, shows the value they place on their customers and developers. I also want to give a special thank you to those who nominated me for this award.
