The Azure Synapse Influencer program recognizes Azure Synapse Analytics community members who actively support one another by sharing Synapse-related content, announcements, and product news via social media.

Azure Synapse Influencers range in expertise and engagement level, but they all share one common goal—to help others get connected and expand their knowledge of Azure Synapse. In addition to recognizing users who regularly create and post content, this program encourages new users to get involved in community discussions.
