MVP 2016 Windows Development

MVP LogoI am very happy to announce that last week I have been awarded for the 6th time Microsoft MVP  in the Windows Development category. Thank you to everyone in Microsoft (and non-Microsoft people) who made this possible again!

The Microsoft MVP Program is a worldwide award and recognition program that strives to identify amazing individuals in technical communities around the globe who share a passion for technology and the spirit of community. To become an MVP (Most Valuable Professional) candidates are nominated by Microsoft or other community members: they are rigorously evaluated for their technical expertise, community leadership and voluntary community contributions for the previous year. These individuals are chosen because they are exemplary community leaders who voluntarily share their passion and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others.

Congratulations to the other Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals world-wide, nominated and renewed. Especially, I want to congratulate with my colleague Beppe Platania who has been awarded again too!
