Computing instructor receives Microsoft MVP award

Congratulations to BCIT Computing instructor Medhat Elmasry, who was recently awarded Microsoft’s coveted Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for his extensive community service, including numerous free public presentations over the past year, as well as initiating and organizing the .NETBC User Group. Microsoft has awarded the MVP awards for over 20 years to “technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community.”

“The award recognizes the work that I have been doing with the local technology community in Vancouver,” explains Medhat. “I started the .NET BC User Group in 2003 and it has grown to over 1173 members today. I was awarded the MVP title under the Visual Studio and Development Technologies category because of my experience with their software development technologies involving C#, ASP.NET, UWP, WPF, Entity Framework, .NET Core, and others.”

MVP status offers access to product development teams, and even some sneak peaks into what’s coming next at Microsoft, but mostly Medhat is pleased to be recognized: “it is a big honor for me.”
