MVP Program

Since 2006 I have received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award annually in the Visual C++ category that consequently granted me membership to the MVP program, a membership shared with several thousand people from about 100 countries, experts in one or more Microsoft products or technologies. (An MVP is not a Microsoft employee and does not represent Microsoft in any way.) I have been awarded for contribution to online communities focused on Microsoft products, and in particular Visual C++. This allowed me to meet great people from Romania and around the world, who share the same passions and interests in technology.

You can read more about the MVP program and award at the MVP official home page. My MVP profile is available here.

Below are some pictures from some MVP events in Romania and USA.
