On July 1, 2014 I received notification that I was awarded the Microsoft MVP in Identity Management for the 8th year in a row. As of Sept 14th 2014, I am one of 11 MVPs for Forefront Identity Manager worldwide. Microsoft MVP is not a certification, it is an award for contributions to the community. I feel very honored to receive this award once again. Check out my MVP profile.
“MVPs are exceptional community leaders who actively share their high-quality, real-world deep technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.” (http://mvp.microsoft.com/en-us/overview.aspx) “Some of the criteria … include the impact of a nominee’s contributions to online forums such as Microsoft Answers, TechNet and MSDN; wikis and online content; conferences and user groups; podcasts, Web sites and blogs; and articles and books”
