Awarded as a Windows Azure MVP


What an amazing year! I met amazing people, travelled around, and had a lot of fun. Today came the climax. I’m awarded as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Windows Azure.

That is a big honor for me, but I like to take the chance to thank the guys who made this possible.

First of all I like to thank the passionate community around the different Microsoft products, especially Windows Azure. I never saw that kind of passion and energy. It is amazing to be part of that community.
Also I like to thank the people who supported me in the last years, regardless of whether at university in Magdeburg, in the Microsoft Student Partner program, or in the Windows Azure Insiders community. You have deeply impressed me!
At last I want to show my respect to the people from Microsoft, especially the Developer Platform Evangelism (DPE) group. I met a lot of you guys, from Germany and from the US, in the last three years and every time it is a pleasure to talk and to listen to you.

To make a long story short: Thank you a lot and keep up the good work!
