Author by James Savage

Concurrency, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Infrastructure Team Lead, Nate Lasnoski, was presented with Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for his work with virtualization technology. The Microsoft MVP Award is an annual honor that recognizes technology leaders worldwide who actively share their high quality, real-world expertise with Microsoft and its users. Core News Facts:
  • As of this release, there are only 79 MVP's with virtualization expertise in the entire world
  • Microsoft has been recognizing IT leaders with the MVP Award since the early 1990s.
  • Microsoft often gives MVPs early access to products, and typically solicits feedback and recommendations about product design, development and support.
  • To receive MVP Award status, individuals are nominated by technical community members, current MVPs and Microsoft personnel. A panel that includes MVP team members and product group teams evaluates each nominee's technical expertise and voluntary community contributions in the past year and considers the quality, quantity and level of impact of the MVP nominee's contributions. Active MVPs receive the same level of scrutiny as other candidates each year.
About the Microsoft MVP Award Program Microsoft began the MVP Awards as a way to recognize members of the general public who devoted their time and technical expertise to helping users in various online technical forums. Over time, the program evolved, and awards are given to members of technical communities worldwide for their contributions to communities including third-party Web sites, user groups, blogs and wikis.
