I am a Microsoft Dynamics CRM MVP!

Yesterday (1 January 2015) I received the Microsoft MVP Award for my contributions to the Dynamics CRM Community. It is a great honor for me to be part of the MVP family.


I work with Dynamics CRM since 2010 but my online presence started 2 years ago. The reason to join several sites at the time was a bit selfish: I was in a new country, the first Dynamics CRM project at my new job was for the most part server side related and I was worried to forget the client side customizations (the big dilemma: getAttribute or getControl? :) ). Helping others to fix their JavaScript looked like a good idea to refresh my memory but shortly I realized how helpful and pleasant is to frequent the various communities and engage with their members.

I would like to thank the following MVPs:
Andrii Butenko: few months after I joined MSDN he sent me this email: “Hello Guido! Found you at MS Forums, checked your blog! Keep up good work!”. Everybody knows Andrii and his contributions so this message means a lot to me.

Jukka Niiranen: I met Jukka in person during a very cold winter, but previously he helped me by email when I was searching a job in Finland. At the time he wasn’t yet an MVP but what he did for me is only a small example of how he likes to help other community members.

Scott Durow, Jason Lattimer and Tanguy Touzard: Because I am a developer their tools and contributions helped me very much during these years. In addition, many of my forum answers are “use the tool ____ from Scott/Jason/Tanguy” and this shows how important they are to the Dynamics CRM Community.


  1. Congrats Guido! Sometimes I swear you live on StackOverflow!

  2. Aww, Guido, saw your newly fresh badge in the right side of your blog, feeling happy for you :)

  3. Congrats Guido! You've helped me out (and I'm sure countless others) with your Stackoverflow answers. Keep up the great work!

  4. Congratulations Guido! You have helped me before. I love the Microsoft community and truly realize we all rise together by helping one another. Have a great day!
