Fall 2013 DNN★MVP's

In 2012 we introduced the DNN★MVP awards; a program intended to recognize those exceptional DNN community contributors whose participation and enthusiasm help make our ecosystem such a passionate and collaborative environment.


 The DNN★MVP award is an annual designation and this past weekend at DNNCON in West Palm Beach Florida, an event sponsored by Arrow Consulting & Design, we announced the latest group of award recipients. In no particular order, and listing just a few of their notable accomplishments:

Star Peter Donker (Switzerland) Owner of Bring2Mind, Creator of DMX, Former Core Team Member, Member of DNN Europe, DNN MVP 2012, @pdonker

The DNN★MVP award is performance-based and recognizes exceptional contribution during the previous 12 months; primarily focussing on activities performed in the various community channels represented on, but also including valued community activities occurring elsewhere. As part of the process for choosing award finalists, a committee of current DNN★MVP's and active DNN Corp employees consider the various types of contribution for each individual, especially their level of support in the Forums, Exchange and Wiki, as well as their contributions of valuable open source extensions through the Forge.

Do you want to be a DNN★MVP? DNN★MVP's enjoy a number of benefits including promotion & recognition; monthly insider meetings & and access to privileged resources. MVP’s are selected twice per year, with the next opportunity coming up in Q2 2014... so get active and contribute and you may be recognized as one of the elite members of the DNN community!

Nice selection of hard-core, hard-working cool cats; and yes, I've also had the privilege of meeting many in person! Your constant contributions to the community is what inspires me to keep shooting my big fat mouth off about the fact that DNN is not only a project, but a family of people who care about each other. ack!
