About the MVP Award

Among the thousands of developers who use OutSystems every day, there are truly passionate tech experts who contribute to the community regularly, both online and offline, and evangelize the product every chance they get.
The OutSystems Most Valuable Professionals Award recognizes these valuable experts and introduces them to the OutSystems ecosystem of partners and customers as the best developers on the market. Starting this year, the program will now be an annual award program. The new MVP award will be given out once a year, and the winners will be selected based on their contributions made within the previous year.

Nomination process

MVP Award candidates will be nominated and referred by the community. This means that there are no applications, and self-nominations are not considered for the process.
The nomination process will open on March 8 and, until April 17, every community member is welcome to participate and recommend their peers to be nominated for the OutSystems MVP 2022 award.
All nominations will be reviewed by the OutSystems Community team, and a select number of candidates will be interviewed to understand their motivations and technical expertise. 

Eligibility criteria

To be considered for the MVP award, the candidate must meet the following requirements:
  • Have strong knowledge of the OutSystems platform with hands-on experience, pushing themselves to always be on-top of the platform's features.
  • Act like an OutSystems advocate, be a champion when it comes to promoting OutSystems and motivating others to learn new skills and advance their careers.
  • Be helpful! There are a lot of different ways to do it: helping other fellow community members, helping other communities to understand what OutSystems is or even helping OutSystems improve their products.
There are several areas of contribution; an MVP should be a reference in one of these areas and be understood and recognized to be a go-to person by other community members and by OutSystems.
For now, nominations are closed.
