The knowledge and experience they share help our customers and partners build incredible digital experiences for their organizations and customers.”

This recognition brought back memories of the first MVP award I received 10 years ago, which was completely unexpected”, said Julia Gavrilova, long-time Sitecore MVP. “I don’t know any other development community where everyone is so supportive and eager to share knowledge and expertise. I am very proud to be part of this group of professionals, and am excited to continue helping others to learn, grow and build incredible digital experiences with Sitecore.”
