On 1st January 2011, I was awarded for the first time Microsoft Most Value Professional (MVP), back them as a BizTalk Server MVP, joining an amazing worldwide group of technicians and community leaders who actively share their high quality and real-world expertise with other users and Microsoft. And since then I was re-award in:

  • 2012, again as BizTalk Server MVP;
  • From 2013 to 2015, I was rebranded as Microsoft Integration MVP;
  • In 2017, Integration become part of Azure category, so I was awarded for the first time as Azure MVP
  • And in the middle of 2017, I was Award in two categories, Azure and Visio MVP;
