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?
Alexander Vanwynsberghe - currently working for RealDolmen as an ALM Consultant. I have several years of experience in various fields of software development and have actively used several technologies and frameworks. I focus on the three pillars of ALM: People, Process and Tools. From a tools perspective, my expertise lies mainly on Team Foundation Server and Microsoft Test Manager. From a processes perspective, I'm is particularly active in testing processes and Agile methodologies like Scrum and Kanban. I'm also a big believer of heterogeneous development using Team Foundation Server.
What makes you “tick”?
I continuously want to improve how people 'create' software and how this process is managed. Because most of the projects do fail because a lack of communication, no structure, no discipline, no interaction with stakeholders, it really drives me to improve processes, letting teams become more productive, finding the right solutions for existing problems.
Where do you live?
Houthulst - Belgium
Where is the place you call home?
Our house that we build all by our-self, that's my home :-)
Why are you active in the Rangers program?
Because I want to help people who are using Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server by delivering awesome guidance material to them. It's a place where I can add my own professional experiences and where I can learn a lot from the other ALM Rangers.
What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
I'm quite new in the Rangers projects, but I would like to focus on the Kanban Guidance and on the Test-related guidance material.
