Microsoft MVP 2014

This is the 5th Microsoft MVP award in a row since 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The Microsoft MVP award and the included opportunities add a huge benefit like the Microsoft MVP summit where you have the chance to talk to the Microsoft Product Groups, learn and place feedback. But of course the Microsoft MVP award also adds some other great advantages. In the past years I had the chance to travel all over the world and speak in different countries and events, and I met a lot of great people, which also became great friends.

Of course there are a lot of people I have to thank, but I want to keep the list as short as possible. I would like to thank my employer itnetX which is supporting me in the best possible way year over year, my current and former colleagues, the Microsoft MVP community and of course Microsoft employees in Redmond and all over the world.

Cisco Champion 2016

Cisco Champion 2016

Just had a look at my inbox and found out that I received the Cisco Champion Award for 2016, which is my third Cisco Champion Award in a row, after 2014 and 2015. I feel highly honored to get this award and looking proud into the future. Since I do a lot of Datacenter projects with Microsoft and Cisco technologies I can see that the new partnership between Cisco and Microsoft is really paying off and we can expect even better integration and services from both companies.

My Year 2015

I know, it is a little bit later as usual, but still. Another great year has ended and I am ready for a new one again. It is hard to summarize this year, because so many things happened and I am really thankful for it. I had the chance to meet some really great, funny and smart people from all over the world and I had the chance to visit a lot of different cities and countries. As always I try to summarize the year in a blog post, and as always I never get all into one blog post, because it would be just too much for one post or it is simply too personal to share it here. But I have tried my best to do this, in the short time I had during lunchtime.

itnetX Ignite

With the end of 2015, I realized that I work now 4 years for itnetX, and I also realized that the company changed a lot in the past years. When I started in 2012 I was employee number 7 and now 4 years after this we are over 30 employees. This year we not just hired great and talented people, itnetX also merge with Syliance in the summer of 2015, which was really great, since this allowed me to work with even more great and skilled people, and allows me to learn new stuff every day. My job as a Cloud Architect still lets me travel to the most beautiful places around the world and I am looking forward to 2016 to do even more.

Finland

One of my great private trips was my trip to Finland, which was amazing. Finland was beautiful and I can everyone recommend visiting the country if you have the chance and you like snow.

FHNW

I spent a lot of time studying in 2014 and 2015, now the only thing which is left is the Master Thesis to get my Master of Advanced Studies in Business Engineering and Management.
