Windows Azure MVP Renewed!

Every morning one of the first things I do is make a quick check of emails.  Today I was greeted by one email that just made my day.  The subject – “Congratulations 2012 Microsoft MVP!”

Today marks my third time being awarded a Microsoft MVP for Windows Azure.  I was part of the inaugural MVP class in 2010 and am extremely honored to be renewed again this year.  In the past 2 years I’ve had the pleasure to get to know many other Windows Azure MVPs from around the world.  They’re a passionate group of technologists who are a lot of fun to work with!  Many of which I’m happy to call a friend now.  One of the other (many) great parts of being an MVP is interactions with the product teams at Microsoft.  Being able to share ideas and provide feedback with the Windows Azure product team is simply fantastic.  It’s exciting to look back on where Windows Azure was a few years ago and see the amazing progress and growth the platform has seen.  I love working with Windows Azure and am excited for where the next year will take us!
