Today’s Link: How To Become a Microsoft MVP

August 21, 2009

So what does it take to be a Microsoft MVP? We’ve been hearing lots of things about this program – some bad, some good. But, how can you be one?

Paul Randal (Blog | Twitter) has answered one of the most asked questions in the IT community: “How to become an MVP”.

Microsoft defines an MVP as  “exceptional technical community leader… awarded for voluntarily sharing [his] quality, real world expertise in offline and online technical communities.” [MVP Site]

Essentially,  as Paul puts it,  “Becoming an MVP doesn’t mean compulsively answering every question on the SQL Server forums, or blogging huge amounts of stuff that others have already covered – but it doesn mean you have to get out there an interact with the community – it’s all about the community.”

Well read his full post here. This goes beyond the usual “it depends” answer.
