“The key to happiness is having dreams. The key to success is making your dreams come true.” - Unknown
I was awarded the Microsoft MVP title again for the 4th consecutive year, and I thank Microsoft for bestowing this award on me. I am glad my efforts and contributions to the community via my sites DotNetCurry.com, DevCurry.com and SqlServerCurry.com were recognized by Microsoft. Last year my sites combined, reached out to over 800K developers every month.
About the MVP award
For those who are not aware of the MVP award, Wikipedia says:
The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) is the highest award given by Microsoft to those it considers "the best and brightest from technology communities around the world" who "actively share their ... technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft"
Some MVP award Facts:
- Around 4000 MVP’s in the world

- Speak nearly 40 languages
- Answer more than 10 million questions each year
- Offer expertise in around 90 Microsoft technologies
MVP Award Benefits
Being an MVP is fun and rewarding too! Along with an MVP trophy and a certificate, Microsoft values its awardees by providing them with access to several technical resources such as complimentary subscriptions to MSDN or TechNet, access to MVP private newsgroups, technical support incidents, passes and discounts to MS events, insider news and an opportunity to interact with product teams and be a part of the product development cycle.
One of the primary benefits this award gives you is the opportunity to socialize with other MVP’s across the world – like the Microsoft MVP Global Summit and MVP Open Days held almost every year.
