Microsoft MVP for the 5th time in a row

I’m delighted to announce that I have been awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) 2018-2019 for the 5th consecutive year:

Microsoft MVP 2018-2019 | Roman Levchenko

I would like to thank my family for ongoing support and everyone of you who have supported me in any form during the last year. So, needless to say, I couldn’t have done the following without all of you:

# my first book was published

# a couple of technical reviews of the well-known books (details later)

# books translations and localizations for Microsoft Russia

# publications at the official Microsoft Blog

# social activities (sharing, forums and etc.)

# speaking at local events

# multiple blog posts (thanks for your reading and comments!)

P.S. I’d like to paste a new photo here…but my Award Kit is on it’s way :). And, as it’s a 5th award, I’m expecting a special accompanying “5 years” ring.  Stay tuned.

I’m happy and proud to announce that I’ve just received my 3rd Microsoft MVP award

Dear Roman Levchenko,

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2016 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Cloud and Datacenter Management technical communities during the past year.

This year becomes special to me.  VMware vExpert 2016 award 1 month ago and now I’ve got a confirmed Microsoft MVP for the next 12 months as well. I’m very honored to be a part of this and will do my best every single day.

Microsoft MVP provides a list of great opportunities for me such as MVP Global Summit (event organized by Microsoft specially for MVPs) , technical subscriptions (Office365, MSDN) and online/offline meetings with Microsoft staff where you can have a talk with internal Product Groups. These benefits are helping me to acquire advanced knowledge about both upcoming and GA products (…a big round of applause goes to MS)

I’d like to thank my readers, fellow MVPs and other followers that support me over years.
