DotNetNuke’s Most Valuable People

Since the first “core team” was formed in 2004, the DotNetNuke ecosystem has been blessed to attract the participation of exceptional individuals. They’ve come from all walks of life, all corners of the globe, all pools of talent and all manner of motivation. As the open source project has grown it has been through many iterations of team organization and recognition but DotNetNuke has always remained, at its core, a meritocracy; a place where everyone can participate but outstanding contribution is recognized, rewarded and held in high esteem.

MVPDotNetNuke’s employees are valuable people. Our partners, our sponsors, our store vendors and every open source Forge contributor are valuable people. Our bloggers and video producers, our site builders and system integrators, our hosting companies and user groups and SUPERFans… are all valuable people. Every DotNetNuke user and participant in our ecosystem is valuable, this means you! But today I have the great privilege of recognizing the first group of 10 “Most Valuable People” in the DotNetNuke community.

These people are extraordinary; they lead the way in community support, open source contribution, DotNetNuke evangelism and participation. Each of these folks has made a mark… or many marks… in every area, earning a designation it gives me great pleasure to recognize them.

Please join me in welcoming your DNN★MVP’s for Fall 2012 :

Star Stefan Cullmann Star Ernst Peter Tamminga
Star Brian Dukes Star Vicenç Masanas
Star Clint Patterson Star Ingo Herbote
Star Sebastian Leupold Star Mitchel Sellers
Star Brandon Haynes Star Peter Donker

We were delighted to have 9 of our MVP’s onsite at DNN World for our formal presentations.


Back Row: Stefan Cullmann, Mitchel Sellers, Clint Patterson, Brandon Haynes, Brian Dukes
Front Row: Sebastian Leupold, Vicenç Masanas, Ernst Peter Tamminga, Peter Donker, Scott Willhite

If you aspire to become an MVP… you’ll have an opportunity! MVP’s are selected through a combination of community nominations and review twice per year, with the next opportunity coming up in April. So start answering those Community Exchange posts, contribute to the open source Forge, liven up those User Group meetings and get your blogging in gear! You could join this distinguished group and find yourself… a DNN★MVP!
