It’s that of the year again! July 1st is usually the day I look forward to receiving the MVP award mailer from Microsoft. And, yes, it is here again. This will be my 6th consecutive MVP award year and I am glad to be a part of the elite community! I enjoyed writing my first published book and I evangelized Windows PowerShell DSC a lot in last one year. I started writing about containers. I have learned a quite a bit around IoT, Azure, AWS, and GCE. So, naturally, I am looking forward to more this coming year as I expand beyond PowerShell and DSC. Stay tuned!
I am happy to share this news once again. In fact, for the fifth time 🙂 The past year has been a very interesting one. With the release of PowerShell 4.0 and DSC, I had a chance to reach out to large number of community members and help them understand the new technology. I am sure this will only get better in the coming year. I am looking forward to it.
I just got the email from Microsoft saying I’ve been renewed for 2nd year as Windows PowerShell MVP. Nice way to end the day! Dear Ravikanth C, Congratulations!

I am probably the last one to blog about the July 2010 MVP awards. I have not been able to update this blog regularly for several reasons. Anyway, on July 1st, I received the MVP award notification from MS. I did not even know about it until @msigeek called me up to give the news. I was thrilled and excited. I would like to thank @msigeek, @kaliyans and @indiaMVP for all their support. And, of course, the PowerShell community out there. You guys made me a MVP. Thank you..! Here is what I received as a part of MVP welcome kit.
