I have been awarded for 9 years in a row as Microsoft MVP

Since many years, the 1st of July (this year the date was postponed a few hours before the due date) is a special day for me.
It's the day each year we wait for renewal as Microsoft MVP for another year.
It's call "The F5 day" because we are waiting for the confirmation email of the award ๐Ÿ™‚

For me it's the 9th year in a row, but each time is like the first time.
I am proud and honored to have been a part of this family for so long and hope to be a part of it for much longer!

Talking by numbers

This year I tried to summarize my activities with some objective numbers.

  • โœ๏ธ 47 blog posts (80+ since 2020)
  • ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ 33 events as a speaker
  • ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ป 4 events in person
  • ๐Ÿ‘‘ 3 keynote
  • ๐ŸŽฅ 6 events as a producer/organizer
  • ๐ŸŽž๏ธ 100+ hours on Twitch (even I didn't stream since January 2022)
  • ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ 6 interviews as guest

Best moment of the year

This is the timelapse of my keynote at Codemotion Italy with more than 1000 thousand people connected

After this session I received a lot of questions about my setup and the tools I use for online sessions.
This is the reason why after a few days, I wrote a blog post about my setup during a conference.

I think 9 years are a good achievement, but now I'd like to get to the 10-year mark.
And of course, I just started to work on it!
