It is with an immense pleasure that I got an email on October 1st 2015... The title was saying: Congratulations 2015 Microsoft MVP!‏, and inside:

2015 Microsoft Azure MVP Award email

It is really a good pat on the back from Microsoft for the efforts I've put into the Azure community. It is really rewarding to receive that award knowing that there is only around 4000 Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals worldwide.

I will continue that path and who knows... maybe I'll see that email again next year :D
