ALM Ranger Champions – Willy’s nominations!

ALM Ranger Champions – Willy’s nominations!

  • Comments 1

We try and highlight all the outstanding contributions by ALM Rangers and regularly nominate Champions, Champion of Champions and special achievements … but  unfortunately we do not know about all the phenomenal work done by the ALM Rangers behind the scenes.

I have been watching the community for a while, have asked by colleagues for input and have decided to mention a few ALM Rangers who have really gone beyond the call of duty.

Here we go, sorted alphabetically by first name:

Bijan Javidi The creator and leader of the ALM Rangers is fighting fires, supporting, mentoring, nurturing and driving the ALM Rangers community and projects with vigour, tenacity, passion, professionalism and razor-sharp attention to detail. He is literally online 24x7 and we often wonder how much (or should that be little) sleep he needs. image

Bob Hardister

Project lead of the Test Release Management Guidance (TFSTCBG) project.

Brian Blackman

The owner, mentor and driver of Ruck … his tenacity and mentorship at all times of the day and night, his friendship and collaboration with the community is simply phenomenal. Brian is the the mentor/lead/master you want and need when going to battle in the ALM Rangers community. image

Chris Burrows

Project lead of the Visual Studio Quick Reference Guidance (TFSQR) project.

Charles Sterling “Chuck” This blog page is not long enough to list all of “Chuck’s” qualities and contributions made to the communities around the world. The passion, commitment and endless energy he pours into the communities such as MVPs and Rangers leaves me “flabbergasted”. Chuck, thank you for being such a great community driver, colleague and friend! image
Jeff Jurvis The Rangers evangelist, custodian of the pivotal vstser group and continuous supporter and mentor of the ALM Rangers. Jeff’s precious investment of passion, know-how, guidance, leadership and support has enabled us to bring the Ranger communities closer together and quite honestly I cannot imagine a TechReady Ask The Expert without Jeff and his orange cap Smile image

Mathias Olausson

Project lead of the Visual Studio Lab Management Guidance (TFSLM) project.

Neno Loje

The master planner of events such as MVP Summit, the custodian of user friendliness, logo and UX compliance and missing links and features in Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server. If you are planning your next trip around the world or sabbatical to Pluto, make sure to ask Neno to assist you with the planning … he “rocks”! image

Paul Meyer (VMFactory Master)

Project lead of the VM Factory Tooling and Guidance (TFSVM) project and also known as “Factory Master”. If you need to automate anything, give Paul a call!

I have ordered a few t-shirts, which I will be handing to these gents in a 1:1 as a tiny gesture of THANK YOU whenever our paths cross in the physical world!

  • Way to go team.... We are looking forward to the end product.

    Cheers, Tarun
