Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2018 Experience!

IMG_3395The Microsoft 25th Global MVP Summit 2018 just got over last week but the excitement is still fresh and that was just AWESOME !

This exclusive multi-day event was hosted at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington and featured a large catalog of in-depth technical discussions and feedback sessions combined with networking opportunities among fellow MVPs and the Microsoft product groups.

This was the first time I ever attended Microsoft MVP Global summit.

The whole event took place at Microsoft campus in Redmond and the office buildings in Bellevue. I feel grateful and honored to be part of this  wonderful community and of the chances it offers to learn, connect and build a network world of class experts.

From Nepal, I along with Alok Kumar Pandey- MVP in Developer Technologies and Sakaldeep Yadav, Microsoft Azure MVP attended the Summit. In one of the MVP evenings in Seattle, we took time out and even planned a quick gathering to have an exclusive Nepali style MVP dinner. Winking smile


Well, the best part of being at the Summit was the previledge to have unusal great time with Microsoft Product teams and PM’s, with good interactive sessions and NDA contents.


As an MVP in Cloud and Datacenter Management, I get excited and find interesting about being in the conversation around Windows Server, Cloud, Azure, Analytics and DevOps & so on, so I fundamentally sat thru sessions around these products and technologies during the Summit. IMG_3417 - Copy

Like I said, I feel very lucky and privileged to be part of this amazing group. During MVP Summit, other than anything else, we also expect Microsoft to listen and when possible, act about what as MVPs share and discuss. The feedbacks that we provide are mostly taken very positively.

Below are some more pictures with other MVP folks taken with my DSLR.
