Be awesome. Be Tadit.
Thank God, I was not fooled on April 1. 🙂
I am really happy to announce that I have been awarded as one of the “Most Valuable Professionals” in
ASP.NET/IIS category. This is the very first time I am getting awarded by Microsoft for my Technical Community Activities.
What is Microsoft MVP?
Answer : Click here to know more.
The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is our way of saying thank you to exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others. It is part of Microsoft’s commitment to supporting and enriching technical communities. Even before the rises of the Internet and social media, people have come together to willingly offer their ideas and best practices in technical communities.
My Journey So far…
My journey started on 11 July 2011, when I joined Mindfire Solutions. I was passionate for
.NET Technologies during my Engineering days and fortunately I got a place in
.NET Team after the training sessions.
I made many friends and some are indeed very special to me. They always encourage me for Community Activities and eventually I come to know about Code Project Community. Code Project is an awesome place to write Articles, Tips and Question Answer Activities. So, I went on answering the Questions first, then I gradually tried my hand on Articles and Tips. I got a very good response and votes from the viewers. The CodeProjectians always boost me for my work. I also started writing Blogs. Whenever I get time, I always look at the groups on Facebook and try to answer their queries. Twitter helped me to promote my writings all over the world. Tweeting good Programming resources is something I do regularly. My Reputation Manager had enough faith on me to give me the Moderation work for Dynamics CRM Team Blog.
The Teams I have worked for in my company have taught me many useful tricks to tackle problems on the fly. My previous
.NET team was amazing, disciplined and always believe in fun filled workplace. My current Dynamics CRM Team has a bunch of Geeks, who are hard working and always deliver work on time. These champs taught me how to have patience in everything I do.
Then a special moment came !!! 1st January 2014, I got awarded as a Code Project MVP, which strengthened my chances for Microsoft MVP Award. My happiness knew no bounds. Then I worked harder than before.
Finally, on the April Fool’s Day (6:57 PM IST), I got the mail from Biplab that I have been awarded. I was speechless !!!
Most common question now: How do you manage your time !!!
I am just crazy !!!
It makes you excited for the next question, when somebody appreciates the solution, which you have just answered. Try sometime, you will feel better for sure. Read below to know how mad I am.
- Sleepless nights (not always, if I had replies on my answers or if somebody is waiting for my reply).
- Working on weekends.
- Answering questions while sitting at back seat of my friend’s bike.
- Immensely waiting for the network on my iPad to come at my native place, so that I can just answer one question.
- Publish the code while working at office and in between the publish operation, answer one question.
There are many other situations, which can’t be described here !!! 🙂
I would like to dedicate this to my…
Grand Father (Ganeswar Tripathy). His love and blessings always take me step by step towards success. All is for you, I miss you. 😦 😦
I would like to thank…
:: Biplab Paul (Community Program Manager, MVP Award Program – South Asia)- for his constant support and encouragement.
:: Siddharth Rout (Microsoft MVP) – This guys listened to all my stupid queries and answered them with patience. He is still busy doing the same for me.
:: Chris Maunder (Co-Founder, CodeProject) – for rebuilding the amazing forum time to time.
:: My CEO Mr. Chinmoy Panda, who is my idol and source of inspiration for me.

As simple as that !!! Continue what I am doing and learn from my senior MVPs and my MVP lead. Involve myself in online/offline events. Add some more skills to my skill set.
Journey will continue… Bless me and wish me luck.
