I started programming as hobby a when I was 12 in GWBasic and QBasic. Later on I became Visual Basic developer and temporarily I also worked as Linux and PHP consultant. Since 2005 I’m completely back at the Microsoft platform.

The reason that I started this blog is to create a place for myself to keep track of my personal information and progress. It is also is a way for me to get deeper into the topics as I take time to write things down. One of the other things I hope to accomplish with this blog is to make it an useful resource for other people that have interest in .NET, Sharepoint, Sitecore and Project management.

I work at Mavention where we create innovative solutions using Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365 and Sitecore.

Who is Mavention? The name Mavention is derived from the word maven, “a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others.” We are an independent company with an entrepreneurial spirit. Mavention aims for real results for our clients. We do this with passion for both our customers and profession. As one of the few organizations in the Netherlands we have the Microsoft SharePoint Master certification and we have a SharePoint Most Valuable Professional. We regularly organize SharePoint events for our customers and we are represented in the SharePoint Black Belts group in which the best Dutch SharePoint consultants participate.

Mavention implements the new way of work: the new way of sharing information, knowledge and experience. It increases the quality of information and reduces operational costs. Mavention helps businesses to use the new way of work by translating their needs into practical solutions. This results in realistic and manageable projects. Our approach is strikingly distinctive: Mavention makes SharePoint work for you.
