Microsoft updates MVP program with monthly awards, July renewals for all

February 2 2017

Microsoft has made some changes to its MVP award program. Beginning this month, Microsoft will recognize MVPs every month, rather than every quarter, and all MVP re-awards will be done in July.

The goal is to enable "great people to join the program as fast as possible," according to a blog post by Steve Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Developer eXperience & Evangelism (DX) group.
