A game developer from Warrington has been presented with the 2021 Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award in recognition of his exceptional technical community leadership.
A recent addition to the growing engineering team at Sumo Warrington, Matt Jones has been recognised for his work running the “C# on Discord” Community, a forum which has over 23,000 members.
The awards celebrate, honour and thank top-notch technology experts making outstanding contributions to their communities, with individuals from around the world being recognised as MVPs.
