Bunifu has been on the forefront in offering locally-developed technology products for Kenyans. The firm is also pushing an ERP system for schools that we covered here.

In the meantime, the company’s CTO Mr. Kimutai Kipng’etich is representing East and Central Africa in 2018’s Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Global Summit that will end on March 7 in Bellevue and Richmond, WA, U.S.

Kimutai’s attendance is preceded by the MVP award that identifies exceptional community leaders who have showcased their abilities in sharing top-of-the-line and real-world expertise in development community and Microsoft.

Microsoft has an MVP community of more than 4000 members in 90 countries across the world. Among the gains of being part of the MVP community is access to MS products, chats with Microsoft product teams and leaders. Winners also get the chance to attend the aforementioned event.

It is worth noting that Kimutai’s success and award is thanks to his contribution in Visual Studio and Development Technologies with .NET developers. He also founded Bunifu UI .NET Framework and has extensively blogged about it. At the same time, Kim consistently develops open source projects on Github.

“I am very excited to be among the MVPs attending the summit this year as I will have a chance interact with Microsoft’s latest technologies and software engineering techniques aside from meeting with top Microsoft executives,” Kim said adding that the summit will provide him a platform to interact with fellow MVPs from around the world.

The MVP program was launched back in 1993 and has graced more than 4000 people with the award. The program has since been augmented with new categories to include more fields.
