I have 2 great news!
I’m a new Microsoft MVP in the Data Platform category!
During the years 2014 to 2017 I was a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) for Excel mainly because of the contributions I made at the time to PowerPivot and Power Query.
Since July 2017, I stopped being an MVP, entered the rMVP program and tried to regain my MVP status during that year, but I was not chosen at that time, so I stopped trying.
During the month of June this year, after many conversations during the Microsoft Business Applications Summit with people from Microsoft and other MVPs, I decided to try again and sent my application.
Today, on September 1 when I am writing this email, I received a notification that I have been chosen as a Microsoft MVP for the Data Platform category. I did not expect it – it is one of those recognitions that only 200 or less people have worldwide and I want to thank you, because it is thanks to people like you who read my content that this is possible. You can see my profile as MVP from the following link (url).
New website design for PowerQuery.Training
The PowerQuery.Training project is a project that both Ken Puls and myself run. We created that site back in 2015 and it hasn’t changed in terms of branding or style since then. It was time for a new look & feel.
I’ve been working on this for the past few weeks and I was able to make it live during this past weekend.
Please head over to the PowerQuery.Training site (here) and click on the widget on the right to leave your feedback.
