A few days ago, something very special happened in my life. I received the legendary e-mail from Microsoft, that I was awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional or MVP for 2023!:

E-Mail to confirm that I am a MVP!

What is a Microsoft MVP

Before we dive into the details, let’s address the question that may be on your mind: What exactly is a Microsoft MVP?

In order to answer that, I will quote the description from the official Microsoft MVP page:

Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the “bleeding edge” and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies. They have very deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems.

Why “Data Platform” and not “Power BI”?

The MVP program is split into 14 categories. Each category contains certain related products that you can contribute to.
As you can guess, the category “Data Platform” in uniting all data related technologies from Azure SQL, SSAS, Azure Synapse up to Power BI. And accordingly I was awarded in the “Data Platform” category. You can see all the categories and products on the following page:
