A couple of weeks ago I got one of the coolest emails I’ve received in my professional career, it read:
Dear Gavin Barron,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2012 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 SharePoint Server technical communities during the past year.
I’m really happy receive this honour! I’d really like to thank everyone at Intergen for the support they’ve provided over the years and for an environment where community involvement is encouraged. I’d like to personally call out Chris, Chan, Debbie, OJ and Brendan for their personal support and help since I first got involved with this crazy SharePoint thing.
It’s been a heck of a ride so far and with the public preview of Office 2013 announced this morning I’m looking forward to the next few months.
