I got the confirmation this morning that I was awarded the Microsoft MVP award for 2018-19, my second (last year’s award was a tweener for logistical purposes). It’s a honor and privilege to be re-awarded this prestigious honor. My area of focus is Microsoft Azure.
Reflecting back, the past 12 months was a fruitful one between speaking at user groups, and codecamps, speaking at my first official conference, organizing a Codecamp and Bootcamp, contributing to some product documentation and a couple of OSS projects, blogging, tweeting and related activities. The highlight was attending the Global MVP Summit in Redmond and meeting up with other MVPs and Microsoft teams and leaders.
All these are activities I enjoy doing anyway but to be recognized by Microsoft and the community is an exciting and humbling experience. While no one can predict the future, I hope to do more of the same in the upcoming 12 months while also creating more longer form content on Azure (videos, tutorials, blogposts, et al) with a focus on CosmosDB and Serverless.
