René van Osnabrugge
ALM, DevOps, Continuous Delivery, Initiator and Inspirator
To truly innovate, do not optimize what you do, but rethink what you should do
To learn new stuff, make things better and uncover blind spots
Swiftly uncover the big picture of people, process and tools and switch seamlessly to the details if needed
My source of inspiration
There is no single person that inspires me, but I am inspired by types of persons. People who are self-made, have a future vision and work relentlessy to achieve that are a great source of inspiration. Elon Musk, Satya Nadella, Bill Gates, Bono. They all use their gifts to make things better!
This makes me happy
My family, friends, Things that work out the right way (personal and work) , work, sun, beer, nice food, new innovations
My ultimate Epic Shit moment
Organized the Global DevOps Bootcamp for 30 venues and 1500 people worldwide to let them get acquainted with VSTS and Azure.
Finishing the marathon (twice!)
