Between 2006 and 2017 and then again since 2018 I have received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award annually for a total of 13 times. Initially, it was in the Visual C++ category, which later on was merged in what became Development Technologies. 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.
Below are some pictures from some MVP events in Romania and USA.
