Microsoft MVP Award


The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) is an award presented by Microsoft for the employees or individuals or consultants working outside Microsoft. Microsoft considers MVPs to be technical community leaders from around the world who have been awarded for voluntarily providing technical expertise towards technical communities supporting Microsoft products or technologies. An MVP is awarded for contributions over the past year. (Quote from Wikipedia)


Today I received this e-mail from Microsoft:

Dear Jan Egil Ring,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2011 Microsoft® MVP Award! 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 PowerShell technical communities during the past year.

I feel very honored to be a part of this amazing community, and look forward to interact with fellow peers in the PowerShell MVP community.
