I received notice this morning that I have been awarded Microsoft MVP in the Azure expertise category. It's been a few years since I wasn't renewed as a Bing Maps MVP, and it feels great to be recognized for the work I've been doing with BuildAzure.com, the Milwaukee Azure group, and other online and offline community contributions. This is certainly a great way to ring in the new year.
Happy New Year! And, congratulations to all other renewed and newly awarded MVPs!

P.S. I first posted this saying "2016". Oh boy, it's so easy to type/write the old yer at the beginning of a new year. Happy new year!!
