I’ve been awarded as a SharePoint Server MVP for year 2 today.
It was a great first year, there’s nothing like your first MVP Summit, your first SharePoint Conference, and all the other experiences as an MVP- putting the names to the faces of all the online SharePoint mentors and heroes you’ve had over the years.
I’d like to extend a ginormous thanks to MVP Program and it’s awesome Managers, and secondly Sean Wallbridge & Colin Phillips and all at itgroove, but that goes without saying (almost) as we all work hard in our crew every day, elbow to elbow, advancing our experience as Microsoft Technologists. My success today is everyone else at itgroove’s success as well.
My success is also based on the community I can help- my IT & technology goals have always been assisted by others willing to take the time out to help for reasons other than the almighty $. It is a genuine goodtimes feeling when you help someone out with a nagging technology issue and know someone out there can get on with their day to further productivity, maybe even get out of the office earlier. 😉 The MVP program allows me to fulfill that pattern as people get that much more confidence that they can take a chance on asking a question on a blog, or trust an answer in a forum.
MVP Program Overview
The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is our way of saying thank you to exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others. It is part of Microsoft’s commitment to supporting and enriching technical communities. Even before the rises of the Internet and social media, people have come together to willingly offer their ideas and best practices in technical communities.
