TechnologyOne Senior R&D Developer is named one of Microsoft's Most Valuable Professionals

TechnologyOne today announced that William Bartholomew was recognised as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for the 2009 award cycle. Microsoft MVPs are an annually recognised select group of active and credible experts in online and offline technical communities that demonstrate a passion to share their expertise. The MVP Program recognises these individuals for their participation in technical communities and their willingness to help others.

“Most Valuable Professionals embody the spirit of community and technology in this evolving Web 2.0 world,” said Toby Richards, general manager of Community Support Services at Microsoft Corp. “They are independent experts, passionate about technology, and they thrive on providing feedback to other users. On behalf of Microsoft, I am pleased to recognize William as a new member of this elite group. William joins individuals from more than 90 countries who share their technical expertise by helping individuals maximize their use of technology.”

MVPs actively participate in a variety of Microsoft technical communities through which a worldwide network of people communicate, support and provide feedback about Microsoft products, technologies and services with each other, as well as Microsoft. These men and women span from 18 to 80 years of age and include a diverse group of backgrounds and professions ranging from authors, artists and technology enthusiasts to professional developers and business managers working in small, medium-sized and enterprise businesses.
