The Embarcadero MVP Program

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

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.

Without further ado, here is the current list of MVPs ordered by country:


Glenn Stephens
Lachlan Gemmell


Filip Lagrou


Adriano Santos
Alan Glei
Caique Rodrigues
Carlos Agnes
Daniel Wildt
Guinther Pauli
Luciano Pimenta
Marcelo Nogueira
Marcelo Varela
Marcos Antonio Moreira
Marcos Gomes
Newton Michel de Oliveira
Pedro Bento
Ricardo Boaro
Rodrigo Carreiro
Samuel David
Victory Fernandes


Radek Cervinka


Jens Fudge


Didier Cabale
Felix Colibri


Daniel Magin
Daniel Wolf
Uwe Raabe


Juan Castillo


Marco Cantu


Eliseo Gonzalez
Marco Santin


Bob Swart

Alexander Alexeev
Alexander Bozhko

Alan Fletcher
Cary Jensen
Nick Hodges
Ray Konopka
Robert Love

Thanks again to all these great folks, and everyone else for their support. As I said, please remember, this is not an exhaustive list by any means, but I think it’s a great start for the program. More names will be added over time, and assets to recognize these great folks will be forthcoming.
