On my way home on August 1st my phone vibrated to indicate I had received an email, but this email was like none I had received before. This one was congratulating me on becoming a Microsoft MVP in Azure. What an email to get. At the time of writing this little post, I am still in shock. I feel extremely honoured that I was chosen for this award and would like to thank a few people because without them this would never have been possible.

First I would like to thank Kenney Lowe and Thomas Maurer for nominating me and their continued support.

Secondly, I would like to thank Aidan Finn and other MVP’s who have reached out to me and given me opportunities to help more people.

A special thank you goes to my partner for all of her support and understanding. She’s been amazing!

I would also like to thank everyone who supports this blog and follows me on twitter. All of your comments, follows, likes and shares have encouraged me to do more.

Thanks also go to my employer for their continued support and for pushing me to be the best me.

Lastly, A big thank you to Microsoft for awarding me this award. I am truly honoured to be part of this amazing community.

In case you don’t know what an MVP is?

Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the “bleeding edge” and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies. They have very deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems. MVPs make up a global community of over 4,000 technical experts and community leaders across 90 countries/regions and are driven by their passion, community spirit, and quest for knowledge. Above all and in addition to their amazing technical abilities, MVPs are always willing to help others – that’s what sets them apart.

I’m Richard Hooper aka Pixel Robots. I started this blog in 2016 for a couple reasons. The first reason was basically just a place for me to store my step by step guides, troubleshooting guides and just plain ideas about being a sysadmin. The second reason was to share what I have learned and found out with other people like me. Hopefully, you can find something useful on the site.

I recently landed on your blog page and can’t remember how but must be part of some search as always a IT person dependent on. I see value in here and no doubt you deserve the award. Congrats!
