I have been an MVP for the past 9 years and have met some very passionate and talented individuals during that time. It is important to remember that the MVP Award is not a technical award – it is an acknowledgement of the work an individual does for the community over the previous 12 months. Having said that, it is usually very technically knowledgeable people with a passion to share their knowledge that earn the MVP award.
My friend and colleague, Nick Hauenstein, has all the attributes that qualify him for this award. He is amazingly knowledgeable across many technologies including BizTalk, TFS/ALM and software development in general. He is passionate about sharing that knowledge with anyone wanting to learn. He is a committed and caring individual that cares about communities – both technical and non-technical.
Nick will be at these upcoming events. If you happen to bump into him, be sure to congratulate him on his award and ask him anything about BizTalk/TFS that you’ve ever wanted to know. You’ll soon learn that Nick is the ideal recipient of the Microsoft MVP Award.
