The Embarcadero MVP Program

Posted by on in Blogs
You may have heard of this program under the working name of "Embarcadero Evangelist Program". The official name will be "The Embarcadero MVP Program". It's a program tailored to recognizing our awesome advocates in our great community.

An official landing page with links to everyone's pages etc, as well as official logos, and other materials are in the works, but I wanted to take this opportunity to preview the program if you will, just like we're starting off the XE3 World Tour as preview events.

It brings me great pleasure to announce this program, and to give you the list of the current MVPs. Some of them have already blogged and/or tweeted. More people are in the queue for sure, and I'm hereby asking anyone that wants to, to send me name and contact information for anyone that you believe should be an MVP. An MVP is someone who is a well known advocate in the community, and does great stuff for everyone's benefit.

    For the states I would suggest to add a certain Nick Hodges who's writing about and still doing great things for the Delphi comunity.
    For Italy I would suggest to add Marco Breveglieri who is very active in the peergroups.
    Regards, Fritz

    I'm surprise to not see Andreano Lanusse name on this list, even he is no longer in Embarcadero, he is the Delphi reference in Brazil

    I am very glad to see Robert Love in the list and would like to congratulate him sencerely.
    Really impressed by the series of his sessions at CodeRage 6 on RTTI.
    Rob, you're the great!

    I would like to suggest inclusion of all the long-time third-party developers still committed to writing, producing, and supporting components for Delphi, such as Bruno et al at TMS, the guys at DevEx, and many others. If it weren't for their commitment to Delphi in the face of one marketing misstep after another by Borland/Inprise/CodeGear Management, there might not be any value to Delphi at all today.

    I'd nominate Rodrigo Ruz of Chile (http://theroadtodelphi.wordpress.com). He provides some of the meatiest Delphi code examples out there and covers a variety of relevant topics very methodically and extensively. His RAD Studio syntax highlighting theme management utility is great.

    What about Zarko Gajic, with his representations about Delphi programming. He deserves to be a part of the MVP list.

  • Guest
    Anders Ohlsson Tuesday, 25 September 2012

    He is on the list. Check the new members in a later blog post on my blog. ;)
