I’m a 2021-2022 Windows Insider MVP
Today I’ve received an e-mail from Microsoft that I’ve been awarded the Windows Insider MVP title. It’s a great honor for me to receive this award to kick-off 2021!
Windows Insiders are focusing on providing feedback to make Windows better. This can go all the way up to providing feedback on improving security aspects of Windows or just suggesting new features.
The audience of Windows Insiders can various from developers to IT Professionals. All of them have one thing in common and that is, that they are passionate about Windows!
How do you become a WIMVP?
The first and most important thing is being passionate, but also willing to share your knowledge about Windows to the community. I started for example with blogging about different Windows topics, such as. How security descriptors work, and I’ve showed around, how you can use public tools to view security permissions being set on securable objects. With the goal to help readers understand the topic better.
Besides of blogging, I have also tweeted about different features in Windows, like for example. Using the robocopy utility to transfer files on a remote machine, but in addition to that. I also gave some tips on using certain parameters that will help you transfer (large) files on a much quicker way. Who doesn’t want that, right?
Windows is very broad and there are so many things you can cover. If you know for example how DPAPI works in Windows, and you want to blog about it. Well, I can recommend you to do it, because I’m sure people with Windows Internals interest will love it.
However, keep in mind that it doesn’t always need to be technical. If you can explain to people how the latest features in Windows work, and what benefits they can have for an end-user. That is awesome too. But wait… There is more. Let’s assume that you have tons of ideas on making Windows better. Why not provide all your feedback via the ‘Feedback Hub’ app in Windows?
Okay, so to make a long story short. Be passionate and curious about Windows, but don’t forget to share your knowledge to the community. Because at the end of the day, everyone can learn from each other.
