My presence among the Microsoft community over the last 25 years has earned me the title of MVP 13 times by Microsoft. I particularly appreciate the space that's offered to explain things in a simple way and to ensure that knowledge is updated according to transformations. After all these years, I can say that my great understanding of the platforms enables me to anticipate their evolution while keeping a pragmatic eye on the challenges that come with this modernization. For these reasons, I am pleased to be part of our Microsoft training program.
