Once MVP, always part of the MVP community! – Awarded with MVP Reconnect

Many things happen short after another. After I needed to lay down the MVP title on the 1st of July, something awesome happened last night.

Short before midnight, I got a mail from the MVP Reconnect program which invited to join the group of reconnected MVP 🙂

I’m extremely happy about and very thankful 🙂 I really loved to be part of the MVP Community and that’s the chance to be part again, even as a Microsoft employee.

 

Times change … sometimes faster as expected

Hi everyone,

it’s more than one year since I became an MVP and join that awesome program but it will be my first and last year as regular MVP. I decided to leave the program and join Microsoft itself.

With the beginning of July I will start my career at Microsoft Germany. I will start as Cloud Solutions Architect and follow awesome guy’s and friends like Daniel Neumann, Anton Staykov or Alessandro Cardoso. Aidan Finn would say “I will go blue” referring to my new batch color which is changing from purple (Microsoft Partner) to blue (Microsoft Employee).

Even as Microsoft FTE I will continue my community and try to support you with the new experiences I will make in the future.

Thank you for your great support over last years and thank you to all my MVP Friends, Microsoft PG and the MVP Program Leads. 🙂

Speaking at Cloud & Datacenter Conference Germany

Hey everybody,

this week I got a mail from Carsten Rachfahl the inventor and host of the Cloud & Datacenter Conference Germany. The CDC is one of the biggest IT Conferences in Germany and Carsten offered me a Speaker slot at his conference 🙂

I’m so proud that I match Carsten’s high quality standards and will be able to share some knowledge about Microsoft Azure. The topic I’m speaking about isn’t completely clear yet but I think it will be Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Azure Networking. 🙂
