The Valo team has kept growing during the summer and we are extremely happy to welcome two new Microsoft MVPs to the team, on top of the existing five that have all renewed their MVP statuses, earlier this summer.
Welcoming new Microsoft MVP to the Valo team – Vardhaman Deshpande joins the Development team
MVPs, Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the “bleeding edge” and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies.
Vardhaman reached the MVP status first time in 2018 for Office Development including Microsoft Graph and Microsoft Teams development, in addition to SharePoint Development, which fits perfectly with our roadmap!
[quote_card_v2 author=”Vardhaman Deshpande” author_jobtitle=”Software Architect “]I am really looking forward to join the Valo product development team! It is going to be very exciting working with talented folks all over the world and building great products on top of the Office 365 and Microsoft Azure platforms. Valo is well known throughout the Office 365/Azure community and when I got the chance to work with them, I did not have to think twice! I have already begun imagining how the next generation of Valo products will leverage Microsoft’s innovations and delivery great value to its customers
