How to become a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP)?

This question was haunting me from long that how to become an MVP, the simplest solution is CONTRIBUTE and SHARE!


The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is an annual award given to outstanding members of Microsoft’s technical communities based on contributions made during the previous 12 months to offline and online Microsoft-related technical communities.
