About me

I'm a Microsoft MVP with the Visual Studio Development Technologies expertise. Professional senior software developer, architect and trainer for more than 17 years. I'm also a Pluralsight author.. Having experience in all .Net type of applications, most of my current projects are web apps in MVC with HTML5. And with that, I learned many client side Javascript frameworks and libraries such as Angular, React and Knockout. Most of the web projects I worked on are deployed in the Azure cloud.

I'm an international speaker. Conferences include DevConnections (Las Vegas) and TechDays in The Netherlands.

The last 8 years I'm also a Microsoft Certified Trainer

I led a lot of Microsoft courses using the Microsoft
Official Curriculum (MOC), almost all the software development courses available from Microsoft as well as custom courses.

But, I'm not only training Microsoft stuff. I also led many trainings in Javascript and many of it's libraries.
