Thank you to all the MVPs who converged on Microsoft World Headquarters last week to make this the biggest and one of the best MVP Global Summits ever!
Nearly half of the 4,000 worldwide MVPs took time away from their very busy work and home lives to sit down and join in deep, technical conversations with hundreds of Microsoft engineers and executives from November 2nd through 5th. And on the Saturday before the Summit even started, more than 20 members of the community gathered in a wet field northeast of Redmond to help collect produce for nearby foodbanks. Organized by Visual Studio and Development Technologies MVP Paul Litwin, the post-harvest gleaning for Hopelink surpassed the organization’s goals for the day.
The 2015 MVP Global Summit officially kicked off with a warm welcome to the community by Steve Guggenheimer (Guggs), corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Developer eXperience & Evangelism (DX) group. Then the community launched into more than 600 highly technical, NDA sessions all over the Microsoft campus. They were joined by engineering and marketing teams from across Microsoft, including executives such as corporate vice president of the Developer Division, Brian Harry, corporate vice president of the Microsoft Azure team, Jason Zander, and corporate vice president of the Enterprise Client & Mobility team, Brad Anderson.
Throughout the event, members of the community shared their tips, tricks and technology perspectives in interviews with Channel 9—both in studio and at a pop-up set at Microsoft’s Executive Briefing Center.
Feedback on Twitter for the 2015 MVP Global Summit has been overwhelmingly positively:
