There is no denying that 2020/2021 has been a roller-coaster of a year. We are now 16 months into a global pandemic. That said, July is the annual Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) renewal process which has just been completed. I am yet again humbled to receive the award email notification this morning informing me that I’d received MVP Renewal for the 2021/22 year in the Enterprise Mobility – Identity and Access Management category. This is my forth renewal after being first awarded in 2017.
I’m super excited about the advancements in identity and access management that we’ve made in the last 12 months. Especially in regards to Passwordless and even more so Azure AD Verifiable Credentials. In my biased opinion “Digital Identity” certainly is a great specialization to be in.
I’ve put together a quick markdown document to link to the recent projects, blog posts and libraries many of which I’ve either created or updated in the last 12 months.
