Attending MVP Summit 2011

*Excited* – I will be attending “2011 MVP Global Summit” from 28th February till 2nd March at Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond, USA.

“The MVP Global Summit is a multi-day event that is hosted in Bellevue and at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington. With a large catalog of deep dive sessions and a variety of networking opportunities, the MVP Global Summit enables MVPs to connect with other MVPs, build relationships with Microsoft product managers, and provide feedback on Microsoft products and technologies.”

*Long Flight* – Yes that is pity, the flight duration from Karachi to Seattle is around 20-24 hours 😐 but hopefully connecting flights will give me some lag time to relax at different Airports.

*Getting Connected* – Perhaps one of the greatest opportunity that MVP Summits provide is to get connected with Microsoft MVPs and build relationship with Microsoft people.

I am really looking forward to attend the summit and hope it’s going to be fun. You can follow the event on twitter with #mvp11

Feedback to Microsoft

We will be having opportunity of direct interaction with Microsoft CEO “Steve Ballmer”, C# Chief Architect “Anders Hejlsberg”, General Manager – Community and Online Support “Toby Richards”, Senior Corporate VP Online Services “Ron Markezich”, and Visual Studio and Programming Languages Teams.

As I will be representing technical community from Pakistan, so if you or any of your friend have question or feedback for them especially related to .NET Platform, please feel free to send me directly via commenting below this post or email me at adil.mughal@live.com_no_spam. I will be glad to share with them on your behalf.
