Proud moment- got .NET foundation coin at Microsoft MVP Summit 2016

Microsoft Most Valuable Professional summit is yearly conference for all the MVP from all across the world organized by Microsoft in their Seattle campus. In the MVP Summit 2016, I got .NET foundation coin from none other than ever inspiring Scott Hanselman . Getting .NET foundation coin was a proud moment for me. Now, I am spired to learn and add more values to the developer community all across the globe.


Why I got it?

I got it for my contribution to MVC documentation. I contributed to MVC Area topic, you can read that here:


How I contributed?

Contributing to the documentation is super easy. A few months back, I wrote an article about ASP.NET MVC Area and published it on Infragistics blog. Through tweets, Rick Anderson came across the article, and asked me, would I like to contribute to MVC documentation for that particular topic ? For sure, my answer was yes. After that, Rick helped me in contributing and committing to the documentation’s GitHub repository. It took around a week to complete the whole process.

Here is the GitHub repository of the doc : . You can see last commit by Steve Smith

In MVP Summit

In the MVP Summit 2016, I met Jeff Frtiz and he had my documentation contribution in his mind. So once again, he asked me to send my contribution in his email. I sent, and after sometimes, he walked to me with Scott Hanselmanm, when Scott gave me .NET foundation coin in front of fellow MVPS. It was a proud moment for me.


I would like to thank Scoot Hanselman for recognition, and many thanks to Jeff Fritz and Rick Anderson for all help. I am motivated to keep working.
