Azure MVP

I'm very honored to have been selected as a Windows Azure MVP by Microsoft. I've been told I was the first selected, so I'm going to consider that a double honor.

To quote the MVP web site, "The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is an annual award given to outstanding members of Microsoft's technical communities based on contributions made during the previous 12 months to offline and online Microsoft-related technical communities." I'll take that to mean I'm doing something useful to help adoption of this great technology platform.

Well, enough tooting my own horn. I'm happy to have received this valuable credential, and I know I need to keep up participation to have it renewed next year.

Windows Azure certainly has come a long way since I got my first advance look at it 2 years ago. It's growing up rapidly, and I love working with it. The best is yet to come. Go Cloud!

Congratulation! First one :-)

Thanks a lot for all the effort to help the community on top of Azure.

They may have meant first in the US. I did see some Azure MVPs listed prior to the Oct 1 announcement and I believe they were all from other parts of the world.
