MVP 2018: Thank You, Sitecore Community
About That MVP Thing...
Sitecore MVP selections have been announced, and I'm thrilled to announce that I was chosen as a Technology MVP for 2018.
As a Sitecore developer, I've always turned to the Sitecore community for help as I matured over the years. In 2016 and 2017 I began participating in the community, and I found a wonderful bunch of people. I founded Sitecore Spark on the idea of teaching Sitecore topics in short, quick bursts - get in, learn something, and move on. The Spark Blog has been a great way for me to connect with the larger community and - wait for it - "spark" a conversation or two.
For all those people who have paid attention to Spark and helped me get involved with this wonderful community, I say this:
2018: Full Steam Ahead
Becoming a Sitecore MVP isn't a goal, but instead the recognition of hard work and dedication to the community. The next year has a lot in store for me and Sitecore Spark.
In case you missed it on Twitter, I released my first Sitecore module, the Sitecore Publish Reporting Kit (SPRK - yeah, the name conveniently abbreviates to "spark"; I won't let that happen again).
In a couple of months, I'll be opening Sitecore Spark to community contributions - articles, blog posts, videos - to help new Sitecore developers get their voice heard in the community.
In March I'll be speaking at the Rocky Mountain Sitecore User Group in Denver, CO, giving my talk on "Beyond Components: Maximizing the Editing Experience for Content Authors." I'm hoping to help kick up some excitement for the Denver Sitecore scene!
