Technology is moving forward at an ever-increasing pace. One announcement chases another, and keeping up-to-date with the latest tech is getting harder and harder. That's where community-led events fill the gap. Community events are events created by the community, for the community, in an effort to share knowledge between community members and improve technical proficiency across the board. And this is exactly where you'll find MVPs.Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, 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. They have very deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products, and solutions, to solve real-world problems. MVPs make up a global community of over 4,000 technical experts and community leaders across 90 countries/regions and are driven by their passion, community spirit, and the quest for knowledge. Above all and in addition to their amazing technical abilities, MVPs are always willing to help others - that's what sets them apart.MVP Days Israel 2020 is a full-day event driven by the local MVP community to share knowledge on various Microsoft products across the board - Azure, GitHub, DevOps, Power Apps, AI, Data Platform and more.
