Stop writing code! Ok, ok! That might be a LITTLE dramatic. We don’t need to fully stop writing code, just stop writing some of your code. At the very least, start asking yourself “should I really be writing this in code?”. Have you had time to sit down and check out Flow Designer yet? Seriously, it’s going to replace Workflows and if you’ve caught an episode of Live Coding Happy Hour lately, it is truly becoming the go-to tool!
Here on the developer blog we try to regularly highlight the contributions from our 2020 Developer MVPs.

We’ve gotten some questions lately around Developers MVPs for next year now that we’re 2⁄3 of the way through 2020, and we thought it would be a good time to post the high level criteria for the 2021 Developer MVPs. The MVPs are a collection of ServiceNow developers who are passionate about ServiceNow and inspire other developers by sharing their extensive knowledge freely. They help, encourage, and enable developers of all skill levels and types succeed in building and developing on the Now Platform.

G’day and welcome! My name is Andrew Albury-Dor, and I’ve been invited by Andrew and Brad to “Have the honor of contributing to the ServiceNow Developer Blog” (Really, they want more content, I know your tricks!). If you haven’t heard of me, I’m one of the 2020 Developer MVPs , and I’m very excited to be here! To introduce myself, I work for Auto & General Insurance in Brisbane, Australia, and have been developing on the ServiceNow platform for about four years.
We are pleased to announce a brand new program, ServiceNow Developer MVPs. The MVPs are a collection of ServiceNow community members that are passionate about ServiceNow and share their extensive knowledge freely to help and encourage developers of all skill levels and types. They write blogs, share apps, craft videos, live-stream, contribute to social media, give talks, lead Developer Meetups, answer questions on the community forum and slack all to share and give back to this great community.
