Experience

I'm a professional, senior software developer, architect and trainer for more than 15 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 and Knockout.

One of my recent development projects is dealgps, a sales automation tool for complex sales. It's a single page application which I designed end-to-end.

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

The last 7 years I'm also a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT)
I taught 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 a Microsoft trainer. I also conducted training in Javascript (libraries) and SalesForce.com.
