Enriching Technical Communities
Through newsgroups, conferences, forums, networks, user groups, and wikis, as well as their own podcasts, articles, Web sites, and blogs, MVPs are committed to helping others make the most of Microsoft technology.
These exceptional and highly respected individuals come from more than 90 countries, serving their local online and offline communities and having an impact worldwide. Not only independent experts offering real-world answers to technology users, MVPs also offer an objective “voice of the customer” perspective for us at Microsoft.
MVPs are passionate about improving technology. From beta testing to helping Microsoft identify real-world customer needs, MVPs offer amazing contributions with great dedication. And they answer millions of questions each year from technology users around the world. Through all of this, MVPs help keep us in touch with the needs of our customers. With the MVP Award, we say “Thank you.”

“I’ve always been an advocate of sharing as much knowledge with other people as possible. Before I was an MVP, I went to user groups and took advantage of other MVPs contributing their knowledge. I really loved what they were doing and felt like it was something I could easily do as I built my expertise. Now it’s just second nature for me to help people and share that expertise.”

“It is amazing to see how these independent community leaders—who have a deep knowledge of Microsoft products and technologies—are willing and eager to share what they know with their peers in technology communities. For us, they provide valuable feedback and are a true community voice reflecting the needs of our customers.”
