The DNN MVP Program has been refreshed and we are excited to share some updates with you. MVP’s are the DNN Community’s leaders and we are happy to be able to recognize individuals who go above and beyond contributing in various ways to the community. This year we are recognizing some special people as part of the updates plus we are opening nominations for this year’s DNN MVPs.
Updates to the DNN MVP Program
We’ve made some updates to the MVP Program and we’re excited to announce that nominations are open. As part of the the updates we are introducing Current, Lifetime, and Honorary MVPs! Introducing these new categories of MVPs will help us continue to highlight contributions from community members over time.There are also updates to the processes around becoming and retaining MVP status and we’ve outlined them on the Program Overview page plus linked to the newly created DNN MVP Code of Conduct. Be sure to check out the updates for more in-depth info on the program and steps to gaining MVP status.
As part of the updates to the DNN MVP Program we wanted to highlight 4 individuals who played significant roles in shaping the DNN ecosystem, community, brand, and solution. As of July 1st we are happy to welcome the 4 DNN Co-Founders as the Lifetime DNN MVPs. Shaun Walker, Scott Wilhite, Nik Kalyani, and Joe Brinkman’s profiles can be found on the new Lifetime MVP page and they have an open invitation to the monthly MVP meetings.Thanks again for being DNN rockstars and impacting so many lives!
One area we wanted to update within the MVP Program was recognition for individuals who have previously been MVPs. Honorary MVP is a new designation that allows us to continue to recognize MVPs over the course of time. Honorary MVPs may or may not still be involved with DNN, but their previous contributions are no less significant and continue to be valued. Honorary MVPs can become Current MVPs again if/when participation levels increase and with all nomination process criteria met.
David Poindexter often asks... What is a DNN MVP? Our Current MVPs are our active community rock stars who were nominated and received majority vote by the current MVP group. You have likely seen Current MVPs active on GitHub, in Social Channels, participating in the community areas of DNNSoftware.com, speaking at user groups, conferences, and in other locations both online and offline.
The MVP directory has been re-built in Liquid Content and with a new look. Current MVPs will serve as the voting body determining both who retains and who gains MVP status moving forward. We currently have 27 MVPs and we anticipate this number to grow in the coming month with new nominations.
And about the new nominees…
