Congratulations to New and Re-awarded Microsoft MVPs!

  • Comments 1


We are excited to welcome 140 first time Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Awardees and the 814 MVPs that were re-awarded today! The Microsoft MVP Award recognizes inspiring, trusted, and independent experts from around the world who voluntarily share their passion and knowledge of Microsoft products with others.


Each quarter we award passionate technical community leaders and each year more than 4,000 MVPs are honored. MVPs represent nearly 100 countries, speak over 40 different languages, and are awarded in almost 90 Microsoft technologies. Together, they answer more than 10 million questions each year.


Of the more than 100 million social and technical community members worldwide, only small portion are recognized as MVPs. As part of their award experience, MVPs are invited to share their feedback through direct interactions with Microsoft product group teams.


To become an MVP, candidates are nominated by Microsoft, other community individuals, or in some cases themselves. Candidates are rigorously evaluated for their technical expertise, community leadership, and voluntary community contributions for the previous year.


Are you interested in hearing more about the MVP Award from some of our leadership team? Check out this recent video created by Visual C# MVP David Giard about what the MVP Award means to the technical community, what it means to Microsoft, and how MVPs are selected.


Please visit our nomination page to nominate a community leader to be considered for an MVP Award.


Stay connected with us daily! We are on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube!


We’d like to extend a warm welcome to the new MVPs, and welcome back to re-awarded MVPs. Thank you for making a difference in technical communities worldwide!

  • I am exhilarated to be re-awarded MVP for Connected Systems Developer for the sixth consecutive year. It is an honor and humbling to receive this MVP award! I want to thank Microsoft, the Academy, and all of the members of the Guild who believed in me and this project. I could have never completed this film without your support!
