H5YR to all!

The contribution of MVPs in the Umbraco-verse is immeasurable - be it by submitting pull requests to improve our products, organizing Umbraco meetups or festivals, being helpful and friendly towards other Umbracians. A massive H5YR to all!

Remember that you can actually find the full (including previous years) MVP list on Our Umbraco. Note that the 2019 MVPs will be added to the list later on.

And now, about those MVP-related news... 

MVPs are no longer categorized

You may have noticed that the MVPs are no longer categorized. Why? In the last years, we learned that what makes an MVP cannot be put into a box or a specific category or way of contributing. All the MVPs have contributed in multiple and different ways and we want to be able to honor their efforts without putting a tag on them. Therefore, all categories will also be removed from Our.

You'll be able to nominate an MVP

Super exciting news! The nomination for new MVPs will be open to the public in 2020. So Umbraco community members will get the chance to nominate the future Most Valuable People as well ❤️

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!
