According to Scott Guthrie, MVP’s are community leaders and they have been an essential part of Microsoft and Microsoft culture for many years. – and we are pleased to have now three on our team.
This way, we also like to congratulate Sandro Pereira for his sixth renewal in the MVP program, initially as BizTalk, but recently as an Azure MVP.
