Congratulations New and Renewed MVPs – No April Fools!

Today, 984 exemplary community leaders around the world were notified that they have received the MVP Award! These individuals were chosen because they have demonstrated their deep commitment to helping others make the most of their technology, voluntarily sharing their passion and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with the community. While there are more than 100 million social and technical community members, only a small portion are selected to be recognized as MVPs. Each year, around 4,000 MVPs are honored. They are nominated by Microsoft, other community individuals, or in some cases themselves. Candidates are rigorously evaluated for their technical expertise, community leadership, and voluntary community contributions for the previous year. They come from more than 90 countries, speak over 40 different languages, and are awarded in more than 90 Microsoft technologies. Together, they answer more than 10 million questions a year! MVPs are recognized each quarter for this annual award, which continues to grow and evolve to reflect the development of Microsoft technologies. Congratulations to the new MVPs, and welcome back to renewed MVPs. We are very excited to recognize your amazing accomplishments!

    My 6th year as a Microsoft MVP begins today! Can't believe April 1st 2010 was so long ago. Thanks all, Microsoft and the MVP Award Program for your continued support! #mvpbuzz #Jamaica

    On behalf of myself and the entire team at, THANK YOU for all the great work you do in the communities and the technical leadership and knowledge you all bring making better products.  As a former MSFT employee I had great pleasure working with many of the SQL Server MVPs and I am happy to have 2 MVPs on my direct team here too.

    Hi, where's the list of MVPs?

    If I did not get the coveted title, do I get "regret" email?
