I am very humbled, happy, and excited to share that I have received the prestigious Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award for the year 2020. This is my 11th MVP award in a row.
I thank each one of you for reading my articles, attending my webinars, watching my videos, and participating in ng-India. These awards are never possible with your love and motivation.
Microsoft MVP award is valid for one year and on 1st July of every year Microsoft announces it. First time I got it in the year 2010 and since then have been getting it each year.
I have been awarded as Microsoft Most Valuable Professional also in the year 2020, which is my 11th Microsoft MVP Award – Thank you, Microsoft.
I started contributing to the developer community by writing articles back in 2008, and at that time, I had no idea that I would able to continue writing for so long. In the last 12 years, I manage to write 900+ blog posts only because writing gives me satisfaction. Until I don’t write, I don’t find myself confident about that particular topic. I write because writing gives me satisfaction.

These articles are freely available on the Internet to be read by everyone, so they are considered as my contributions to the developer communities, and in one way it is a win-win for me and a developer like you. Microsoft is kind enough to recognize my contributions and awards me the prestigious Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award.
Other than writing, I contribute by creating videos and live webinars. I try to do at least one webinar in a month. In the webinar, I try to go PPT-FREE and do level 300-400 teaching of a particular topic through live coding. So far, developers like you are liking it and finding it very useful.

One of the most critical aspects of the MVP award is mentoring others, and I have been mentoring many folks to be author, speaker, teaching them to get a better job, etc., and I am very proud of that.
