Member News: Fortune Cookie has only 'EPiServer Most Valued Professionals' in the UK
Article Date: 2nd Nov 2010
The status of EMVP, bestowed upon those who make consistent, valuable contributions to EPiServer World in the form of quality blogs, groundbreaking research and development and assistance on the forums to other users, has been awarded to Mark Everard and David Knipe making them two of only twelve EMVP’s worldwide.
The award of EMVP status is hard earned and the EMVP Board must deem developers worthy of the accolade. EPiServer’s Mats Hellström was delighted to welcome Mark and David to such a select group:
“We have made a unanimous decision to add you both to the elite class of EPiServer developers that have EMVP status. It’s an honour to add you to the ranks based on your commitment to EPiServer World. The board appreciates the quality of your blogs and forum entries. In short, we think you rock.”
The award of EMVP status follows hot on the heels of the inaugural gathering of the EPiServer Developers UK Meetup group organised by the above mentioned Mark Everard.
The group has been started with the aim of gathering EPiServer developers based in the UK in an informal setting to share tips, tricks and ideas about EPiServer, ASP.NET and web development in general.
The goals of the group are to:
1. Give developers a stage to demonstrate and share some of their work and experiences with EPiServer and web development in general.
2. Help further encourage and engage the UK EPiServer developer community.
3. Act as a centralised UK channel for EPiServer developers to provide feedback and feature requests directly to EPiServer.
If you are an EPiServer Developer and would like to get involved you can join the Meetup group here.
During the first Meetup another of Fortune Cookie’s EPiServer Certified Developers, Lee Crowe, introduced his Global Search & Replace plugin for EPiServer CMS6. Lee developed the plugin to allow EPiServer editors and admin users to search and replace words and phrases across their entire website in one go, further adding to the efficiencies of choosing EPiServer as a web content management system.
The plugin was developed to make EPiServer better for all users and is therefore available to everyone. For further details please visit Lee's blog on EPiServer World.
