Microsoft MVP

I am delighted to share with you that Microsoft has awarded me “2008 Microsoft® Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in Windows Server – Customer Experience” and this involves several people around technical communities and guys at Microsoft for supporting and recommending me.

The Microsoft MVP Award is Microsoft’s way of saying thank you, to honour and support the significant contributions we make to technical communities worldwide. As a recipient of Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional award, I join an elite group of technical community leaders from around the world who foster the objective to exchange of knowledge by actively sharing my real world expertise with users and Microsoft.

Back in August 2007, I was recognized IT Professional of the month by Microsoft TechNet but this was much awaited.

The MVP Award includes a printed MVP Certificate of Appreciation, a complimentary one-year subscription to MSDN Visual Studio Team Suite or TechNet Plus, goodies from Microsoft Employee Store, access to private newsgroups, Microsoft Product Betas and a channel to speak directly to product groups.

As per the Microsoft’s website, The MVP Award is given in recognition of a recipient’s technical expertise, spirit of community, and their willingness to help their peers by providing reliable and accurate information about Microsoft products & technologies. An MVP is a person with a passion for technology.

An MVP promotes the spirit of community and enhancing people’s lives and the industry’s success every day.
