Once a year, Microsoft awards the title of Most Valuable Professional (MVP) to about 4,000 technology experts across 90 countries/regions who actively engage and share their knowledge with the community. MVPs have a deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, but also the ability to use them to solve real-world problems. Above all, they are professionals who are always willing to help others.
Microsoft recognizes their effort and contribution by allowing them to try beforehand brand new, advanced technology but also by flying them to an annual MVP Global Summit. Besides featuring a large catalog of in-depth technical discussions and feedback sessions, the MVP Global Summit also presents networking opportunities among MVPs and Microsoft product groups.
DevScope is probably the company with the most MVPs in Portugal and, between March 17 and March 22, five of our staff won’t be at the office but instead trying new tech and enjoying themselves at Bellevue and Redmond, namely:
- João Sousa, Visual Studio and Development Technologies MVP
- Rui Romano, Data Platform MVP
- Sandro Pereira, Microsoft Azure MVP
- Pedro Sousa, Microsoft Azure MVP
- José António Silva, Microsoft Regional Director
This is DevScope‘s highest number of professionals at the MVP Global Summit, and we’re very proud of their commitment to the Microsoft community. If you’re among those attending and meet one of our MVPs, say hello. We’re sure they’ll be delighted to exchange a few words and talk about opportunities to collaborate.
