Microsoft MVP for the 5th time in a row

I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) 2019-2020 for the 5th consecutive year:

Dear ,

It is with great pride we announce that Roman Levchenko has been awarded as a Microsoft® Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for 7/1/2019 – 7/1/2020. 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 Roman’s extraordinary contributions and want to take this opportunity to share our appreciation with you.

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:

# Fundamentals of Azure | Translation & Technical Review

# Learn Azure in a Month of Lunches | Technical Review

# publications at the official Microsoft Blog

# social activities (sharing, forums and etc.)

# speaking at local events

# multiple blog posts and continuous learning

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.
