What is an MVP?
In short, MVPs are Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs). For more than twenty years, Microsoft has given that award to technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. There are close to 4,000 MVPs around the globe specializing in approximately seventeen different categories. MVPs share their passion by writing blog posts, articles, and books, answering questions in forums, and giving presentations in community groups and events.

Those moments crystalize relationships and ideas and bring people together and Lixar’s Data Workshop in Halifax was no different.
