MVPs are community leaders from around the world who are awarded for voluntarily sharing their high quality, real world expertise in offline and online technical communities. Microsoft MVPs form a highly select group of experts, representing the technical community’s best and brightest. They are independent of Microsoft, with separate opinions and perspectives, and are able to represent the views of the community members with whom they engage every day.
There are around 4000 MVPs in over 90 countries, speaking over 30 languages and awarded across nearly 90 different technology areas. Microsoft MVP Award provides you an opportunity to learn, grow, and network with the best in the community apart from a slew of exclusive benefits from Microsoft.
