Dmitry getting the MVP Award

MVP LogoIt’s official now, I have just got an email confirming me getting the Microsoft Most Valued Professional (MVP) award. This is a great honor and an indication that all the work we have done by creating PowerGUI – the PowerShell UI console – and the best command line tool for Active Directory – PowerShell AD cmdlets – has been noticed and appreciated.

I am very thankful to Microsoft for this award and to the most vibrant community I’ve ever seen – the PowerShell geeks around the globe.

My MVP profile can be found at:

Marco Shaw got the award as well, so there are at least 2 new PowerShell MVPs joining the community in this new status. Marco is doing a great job helping everyone at the PowerShell newsgroup so this is definitely well deserved.

And here’s the precious email 🙂
