MEA MVP Open Day 2015
Gordon - This was my first MEA Open day and didn't know what exactly to expect. I really enjoyed the event as one of the biggest things that stood out for me was how instead of with MVP Summit where it feels very focused on products and where they are going this event was focused on us and the MVP program itself. It was also really awesome to meet the rest of the MEA MVP's which I didn't really do for that long as I mostly "hang out" with the global ALM guys. It was also really cool to meet with Suliman as I don't get to see many ALM Rangers face to face. Also saw a cool piece of code at work, Windows Embedded MVP Umut Erkal made a machine that made cool MVP pancakes.
Suliman - It was a great opportunity for networking, connecting with the other MVP folks cross MEA region in their different specialties and being lucky to met a folk from the Rangers team their (Gordon) 🙂 The other thing is having more visibility to the MVP award program by sharing the program strategy and roadmap by the program team in corp, and collecting our feedback to improve the program. And being more closed to Microsoft through the sessions conducted by product teams like "Windows 10" and "Microsoft Virtual Academy". It was really a nice journey and very valuable event. Can't wait to see the folks again in the next summit!
