MVPs make up a global community of over 4,000 technical experts across 90 countries, and are driven by their passion for Microsoft technologies, their quest for knowledge and community spirit.
MVPs possess a deep knowledge and understanding of Microsoft products and services, while simultaneously bringing together diverse platforms, products and solutions to solve real-world problems. Always on the ‘bleeding edge’, MVPs possess amazing technical abilities, an insatiable appetite for the newest, most exciting and innovative technologies, and are always willing to impart their knowledge to others; that is what sets them apart.
