Congrats to Martin on becoming Microsoft MVP
As you might know, an active member of our #cloudmarathoner community, Martin Dimovski, became an MVP just a few weeks ago. I have congratulated him on social channels as he truly embraced the #cloudmarathoner community and become one of the vocal people in our community. So, please join me in congratulating him.
