It’s the normal blog post for the 1st July, but this year, what makes it extra special is that it is the 10th award I have recieved. Thanks to everyone who supports me in giving to the community and I hope we can work together to achieve more in the next 12 months.
It is always a great honour to share what I learn with the community and its a great honour to be awarded by Microsoft for this.
Having been away for a few days and coming back to find an email saying ‘Congratulations, Awarded Microsoft MVP’ it is great feeling and I look forward to sharing more with you in the future.
Thanks to all those who read the blog and get involved in the community events.
I love to share my experience working in the education space and enjoy every moment of sharing technical information, bug fixes and concept ideas. I’ve been very honoured over the past 3 years to be awarded as a Microsoft SharePoint MVP and this year I have been awarded again.
Thanks to all those who leave comments and email me to talk about the content on my blog and a special thank you to Microsoft for awarding again in 2011.
The popularity of the ‘MVP chat’ has grown each time Microsoft have hosted the event online and this month won’t be any different when the doors are opened again for you to ask your technical questions. It doesn’t matter if they are IT pro, dev or questions around project management a SharePoint MVP will be there to help answer your that annoying question you still don’t have an answer to.
Here is an extract from the MVP blog about the event
‘Do you have tough technical questions regarding SharePoint for which you’re seeking answers? Do you want to tap into the deep knowledge of the talented Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals? The SharePoint MVPs are the same people you see in the technical community as authors, speakers, user group leaders and answerers in the MSDN and TechNet forums. By popular demand, we have brought these experts together as a collective group to answer your questions live. So please join us and bring on the questions! This chat will cover WSS 3.0, MOSS, SharePoint Foundation 2010 and the SharePoint Server 2010. Topics include setup and administration, design, development and general question.’
You can join us on Wednesday June 22nd at 5pm UK time to chat with MVPs including myself. Learn more and add these chats to your calendar by visiting the MSDN event page http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/events/aa497438.aspx
Its that time of year that I sit and wait to find out if I have been awarded for the last 12 months of activity in the SharePoint and education community.
The time came and I was waiting for the email to come, and it didn’t, and it still didn’t arrive. So I checked my junk mail and still nothing in there.
My fiancée and I went out to the cinema that evening and my phone went off 3 times, each of them emails but nothing to do with my MVP. I checked junk mail again and then logged on to twitter to see that everyone else had heard.
I didn’t sleep well that night. Where was my email, have I been awarded or not.
It was 29 hours after everyone else that I eventually got my email to say – congratulations you are SharePoint Server MVP for 2010. Get in!!!!
Thanks to everyone who has helped and supported me in the last 12 months to get this award again.
Couldn’t believe the email I got today! “Congratulations – You have received the Microsoft MVP Award!” Get in!
Thanks to all those who have helped me in the last year to get this and thanks for nominating me as well!
