This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See An index to all Rangers covered on this blog for more details.
Who you are?
I work as an Solution Architect at Inmeta Crayon, where I work both with traditional software development on the .NET platform, and with Visual Studio ALM where I help our customers (and ourselves) with getting the best out of Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server.
What makes you ��tick”?
Software development in general has always made me "tick", ever since I finally got my ZX Spectrum 48K when I was around 11 years old and noticed that after having played the games it was more fun to create them. Later on, I have realized that a lot of the work involved in developing software are by nature manual and repetitive, and I enjoy developing tools and processes that let us automate these tasks and use our energy to create good software for our customers instead. This is one of the reasons why I have worked a lot with extending Visual Studio and TFS over the last 5 years, and in particular with TFS Build.
Where you live?
I live 15km north of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
Where is the place you call home?
Home is where I live, with my family.
Why are you active in the Rangers program?
I think the ALM Rangers are doing a fantastic job with helping people and companies getting started with the different tools and technologies in the Visual Studio ALM suite. A lot of people are looking for best practices and the Rangers material are always of very good quality. I want to bring my knowledge into the Rangers program and work with the talented people in it .
What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
I haven't been involved in one yet, but I will start working on the next release of the Build Customization Guide, which I'm really looking forward to.
