Today was a good day! I received an email from Microsoft presenting me with the 2011 Microsoft® Lync MVP Award for the first time. The mail stated: “This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Lync technical communities during the past year”. I am proud to be a Lync MVP and want to thank the people within Microsoft who nominated me and the community who share the same passion for technology. It is a good feeling to get recognition for the hard work and dedication you put in to your work and your hobby. I look forward to interact within the Lync MVP community.

What is the MVP Award?
The Microsoft MVP Award recognizes exceptional technical community leaders from around the world who voluntarily share their high quality, real world expertise with others. Microsoft MVPs are a highly select group of experts representing technology’s best and brightest who share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others. Worldwide, there are over 100 million participants in technical communities; of these participants, there are fewer than 4,000 active Microsoft MVPs.
