Earlier today I got the email saying that I’ve been awarded an MVP award again this year for SharePoint server. This is my sixth year and I get more EXCITED about the program every year. This combined with finally finishing my Microsoft Certified Masters (MCM) certification in SharePoint 2010 just over a month ago have made this spring a truly memorable one for me. This last year has been filled with settling in as a Principal Architect at a new company and trying to wrap my head around all the new innovations in SharePoint 2013. I continue to start each day by answering a few questions on the MSDN and TechNet Forums. I really enjoy being able to help people find answers and frequently find interesting questions that I’ve never thought about that lead me to discover new and different things about SharePoint. I often wonder how I learned as much as I did before I gained access to the resources and contacts available to me as an MVP.
But the bottom line is still that I wouldn’t be an MVP if it weren’t for all of you out there in the SharePoint community. Recently I’ve been running into a number of people who have heard me speak at conferences or have seen me answering questions on the Forums. Its been great to meet all of you in person and thanks for all the questions that you’ve asked. AS long as you keep asking questions and listening to me at conferences I’ll keep trying to learn more and share what I’ve learned with all of you. Without you I wouldn’t be receiving this award. I hope to continue to live up to the honor and hope that I never get complacent about what its really about: Helping to support the SharePoint community.
