This month I received an exciting email from Microsoft that I was re-awarded for a fourth year now for the 2022 – 2023 Microsoft Most Valuable (MVP) award in Azure. Receiving the Microsoft MVP award is both a humbling and exciting experience. It means you’re a member of a select group of experts of just over 3,000 MVPs from around the world, but I like to think of it as doing something I’m passionate about with other like-minded individuals, having fun and always having something new to learn and share with the community.
“The Microsoft MVP Award is an annual award that recognizes exceptional technology community leaders worldwide who actively share their high-quality, real-world expertise with users and Microsoft. All of us at Microsoft recognize and appreciate Callon’s extraordinary contributions and want to take this opportunity to share our appreciation with you.” – The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award Team Microsoft Corporation
Since becoming a Microsoft MVP, I’ve learned a lot about the community and continued to share my passion, knowledge and experience within the community around Architecture and Development in Azure, Serverless, API Management, and DevOps technologies. I also keep a keen eye on what’s happening on the data technologies like Cosmos DB, Azure SQL, Synapse, and Purview.

If you’re interested in learning about the Microsoft MVP program and seeing what it takes to become a Microsoft MVP, or how to get awarded, I encourage you to take a look at the Microsoft MVP website and also the following article on “How to become a Microsoft MVP” where they explain some of the details of the program.
To wrap up this post I would like to congratulate all the other newly awarded or renewed Microsoft MVPs all over the world! You truly are an amazing community and I’m truly humbled and honoured to be part of this group.
I’m happy to announce a Highlights from Microsoft Build 2021 digital event next Thursday, July 15. Please join me and other local experts as we look to provide key insights from the event that will help you expand your skillset, find technical solutions, and innovate for the challenges of tomorrow.
Today is Virtual Azure Community Day and if you missed the sessions, they’re available online here https://azureday.community/#schedule. There are a total of 4 tracks offering lots of content.
Where do all the sessions go when events and meetups are being cancelled all over the world? We thought it would be fun to create a platform where we, as a community, can virtually get together and enjoy those sessions you don’t want to miss out on.
Join us for the first ever Virtual Azure Community Day! No stickers or socks, but 8 hours of technical geekery. There’s multiple streams hosted from Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Central and Eastern European countries.
In this episode of Azure Friday, Aman Bhardwaj and Yaron Schneider join Scott Hanselman to talk about the actor model of Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr). Dapr is a portable, event-driven runtime that makes it easy for developers to build resilient, microservice stateless and stateful applications that run on the cloud and edge and embraces the diversity of languages and developer frameworks.
