Introducing the Microsoft MVP Bot!

At the #MVPSummit I sat in a couple of Microsoft Bot Framework sessions.  Cool stuff for sure!  So I decided to write a helpful program for the MVP Program that lets you look up MVP data from your favorite messaging platforms!  

Check it out via Consumer Skype here:

https://join.skype.com/bot/6f9b5f20-1a17-4b53-b7b9-f5072e0fe44e

  • "Hi", "Hello"
  • What MVP Categories are there? 
  • Is Chris Givens an MVP?
  • Contact Chris Givens
  • MVPs in Norway

Follow every Microsoft MVP on Twitter!

Updated as of 11/20/2016 – Several MVPS updated their profiles to add their twitter handle or make it public. 

Updated as of 11/5/2016 – Re-posted the list creation to keep list name under limit.  Added the ability for you to clear out old twitter accounts! 

***HEADSUP*** – this script may cause you to be throttled by Twitter.  I have added some checking in the Http layer that will let you know if you hit their circuit breaker.   If you hit the circuit breaker, just re-try in 24 hours.

Here is a list of every twitter account for every current Microsoft MVP.  They fit into the following new MVP categories:

  • Business Solutions
  • Cloud and Datacenter Management
  • Data Platform
  • Enterprise Mobility
  • Excel
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Office Development
  • Office Servers and Services
  • OneNote
  • Outlook
  • PowerPoint
  • Project
  • Visual Studio and Development Technologies
  • Windows and Devices for IT
  • Windows Development

The "MVPFollow.zip" file contains a TwitterFollow.ps1 PowerShell script.  Simply run it, enter your "username" and "password" and then tell it what MVP category you want to follow (or type "all") and whalla, you will follow all the Microsoft MVPs with twitter handles in their profiles!  

If you were curious all the cool benefits of being an MVP : http://xavierdecoster.github.io/mvpperks/ 

*update* – the script now supports creating twitter lists (private and public).  It will name the list as "mvp-*" and add the target MVP twitter user into that list.   Also added in some more elegant error handling and follow checking.  

Enjoy!

MSDN Forum Jam 2012

Dear SharePoint Community,

Back by popular demand, the MSDN Forum Jam 2012 is ready to go!  What is a forum jam?  It is an all out battle for question answering supremacy in the Microsoft MSDN forums.  This is the second Forum Jam I have hosted.  The last one occurred almost three years ago…you can read about the last forum jam back in April 2010 here:

And the winners of that Forum Jam (which all are now movers and shakers in our wonderful community):

For your reading pleasure, I have also posted an updated MVP ranking on the MSDN Forums with all the latest MVPs (updated as of 11/2012) included here:

http://blogs.architectingconnectedsystems.com/blogs/cjg/archive/2012/11/20/MVP-Forum-Rankings-2012.aspx

The rules for this Forum Jam will be the similar to the last one:

Tweet me at @givenscj to say you would like to participate by November 28th, 2012 (MVPs and Non-MVPS welcome)

  1. At 8am on November 28th, I will take a snapshot of all participants points, posts and answers
  2. Contest will end January 29th (a full two months this time), the person with (measured in difference between snapshot and 11/28 totals):
    1. Highest post to answer ratio wins a $150 gift card
    2. Highest Point total wins a $100 gift card
    3. Second highest Point total wins a $75 gift card
    4. Third highest Point total will win a set of ACS SharePoint 2013 training manuals
  3. Moderators are free to participate, but will be unofficially tracked
  4. I'll post updates along the way to let people know where they stand
  5. All post/answers/replies must be in the SharePoint forums.  I will audit these and any items that fall outside those forums will be deducted from your total!
  6. As
    with anything, rules are always subject to change but probably won't,
    this is not endorsed by Microsoft and won't guarantee an MVP Big Smile
  7. Be sure to follow Forum etiquette, be nice and civil, and recognize others.  Its all about helpfulness!

If anyone else would like to contribute to the bounty let me know!

Let the community building begin!

SharePoint MVP Forum Rankings (11/2012)

Hi SharePoint Community,

In prep for our 2012 Forum Jam, here is a listing of your favorite MVPs (updated as of 11/19/2012) and their standings in the MSDN Forums.  I always find it interesting to see where the "influential" MVPs stand in MSDN community contribution (please let me know if you are missing from the list or your stats are wrong).  NOTE: This ranking says nothing about a persons' skills or how AWESOME they are (in most cases anyway).  There are several at the bottom of this list that are great friends of mine and I respect a lot!  You should know that being an MVP can come from any number of things including and not exclusively the forums:

  • The company you work for
  • Your customers (Fortune 100)
  • Your project references
  • Your code and tool contributions (Codeplex)
  • Products you have invented and marketed
  • Your community participation (Books, courses, forums, blogs, etc)
  • Your involvement with the product team

You can reference the stats from two years ago here:

SharePoint MVP MSDN Rankings

I have had quite a few people ask me how I am able to say when I'm passing someone in the forums.  It's simple really, I built a nice parser that pulls down all the SharePoint MVPs with their stats.  With the latest MVP announcements (New and re-news – congrats to everyone by the way), I'd figure it would be good to promote a sense of community and a challenge to those MVPs that may not be pulling their full weight in the forums community as well as encourage some of you non-MVPs to set some targets for how much you want to participate.  Let me be clear though, forum participation is not the only thing that drives an MVP award.  There are several people on this list that I know personally that are awesome and deserve their MVP even without forum participation.  Things that factor in include:

  • The company you work for
  • Your customers (Fortune 100)
  • Your project references
  • Your code and tool contributions (Codeplex)
  • Products you have invented and market
  • Your community participation (Books, courses, forums, blogs, etc)
  • Your involvement with the product team

So, where does your favorite SharePoint MVP stack up in the forums, you will probably be surprised!?! Check out this list (let me know if I missed anyone or if someone has a separate id that I may have missed).  I really do consider the top 10 the best of the best, anyone that participates that much deserves an MVP simply for their dedication and helpfulness.  FYI, I'm at (1624 | 336 | 083) so I have a way to go.  This is updated as of 3/28/2010.
