Today I received some exciting news: I was re-awarded the Microsoft MVP award for Enterprise Mobility (Identity & Access).
“Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community.”
It’s my 6th award since 2008 (with a break as Microsoft Employee from 2012 to 2016).
But what is more important: I couldn’t achieve this without the help of the Microsoft Community, more specific with the help of the highly motivated TechNet Wiki Ninja’s
To all who made this possible: thank you very much for supporting me.
This weekend I’ve received some pretty exciting news that I was awarded the 2016 MVP award (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) for Enterprise Mobility (Identity & Access).
I’m extremely proud to receive the award, but I never could have achieved this award without your support. So, in the first place I want to thank YOU for supporting me and making it possible. With your help I certainly will continue to support and build the Microsoft and security community with great pride.
A great thanks to Ed Price, Ronen Ariely, Gokan Ozcifci and Jorge de Almeida Pinto for the support and recommendations. (I sincerely hope I haven’t forgotten anyone…) I owe you Belgian beer.
I had the honor to be part of the program earlier, and never have stopped to build and maintain the community with passion for Identity and Access management, but as combining Microsoft FTE with MVP is not possible… I had a break for the years at MS… still it was different.
I’m also extremely thankful that my wife Katrien and my 2 kids can cope with my crazy passion for TechNet Wiki and MS community obsession. This addiction is just so much fun…but I’ll never admit that. (oh ships, just did…)
