I feel quite happy to share the news that I received an email on 1st April, 2015 (No April Fool -:) ) stating “Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2015 Microsoft® MVP Award! “. That email made my day as I received it for the very first time, and its an amazing experience.


Thanks to Al-Mighty Allah for His blessings on me, I would like to thank MIC Pakistan specially Mr. Tahir Masood, Usman Ur Reman and Zehgam Ikram Butt for nominating me for MVP title. I received this award on my community contribution on Technet forums, code & gallery contribution, speaking to local and internal conferences.

I would like to share this with my friends who are with me during all this tenure specially Asad Ullah Chodhary and Atif Hussain who are my inspirations and they helped me to groom technically when I was quite new in the field.

I started participating in tech events with Microsoft Innovation Center and Tech UGs since 2007,  I will keep sharing and posting to the community on my blog and technical forums.
