Microsoft MVP Summit 2012 is Coming

Next week is the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Summit. I enjoyed last year’s summit very much, so I’m looking forward to this year’s event. You can read about the summit on the MVP Award Program Blog:

“This year, more than 1,500 MVPs will travel from 70 countries to meet with members of the Microsoft community. They share their valuable real-world feedback with our product teams to help drive improvements and innovation in Microsoft technologies, and they learn about what’s new and what’s coming in our products.”

The summit takes place in Redmond and Bellevue and it the best chance to spend time with other MVP award recipients. The tracks are divided by topic, so I’ll mainly be seeing the SharePoint and Office 365 MVPs.

The sessions are presented by SharePoint team members, so it’s a great chance to pick the brains of the product team members. Not to mention there are still a few people who I worked with during my time on the MCMS and SharePoint teams, so it will be great to see some old friends as well.
