I want to start the new decade with a new energetic opportunity. Whether it's starting a multiple year journey at a company, accepting an interim role, or work as a freelancer at various companies and build my own brand along the way. I get a lot of energy from: guiding hands-on training, knowledge sharing consultancy, building AWS platforms, and creating communities within organizations. My community work will continue during my this exploration phase.
We started AWS User Group to organize meetups and other AWS events to build an AWS community in Amsterdam. The first half-year of 2019 we organized 20+ meetups, almost reaching the 70 in total. Currently, we have over 2500 members in the community, and more than 50 sponsors and many more speakers contributing to the community.
The AWS Hero program recognizes a vibrant, worldwide group of AWS experts whose enthusiasm for knowledge-sharing has a real impact within the community. Heroes go above and beyond to share knowledge via social media, blog posts, open source projects, events, and user groups.
The APN Ambassador program consists of highly qualified AWS professionals from our Advanced+ Consulting partners that are well-recognized for their experience and area of expertise and actively support the broader AWS community through public contributions.
We started Binx.io (proudly part of the Xebia Group) because we know moving to the cloud is the single most significant technology shift your company will face over the next decade. We are your trusted advisor on this journey and are determined to build a great company along the way.

While working for Mirabeau, Xebia, Binx.io, I proudly worked with the following brands. Some companies for a few years, others just a few weeks or even days. The list is in random order and not exhaustive. Based on my future plans in 2020 and beyond, this list will be updated.
