René is an Azure MVP with a strong focus on the Microsoft Hybrid Integration Platform which includes technologies such as BizTalk, Logic Apps, API Management, Service Bus, IOT Hub and more.
René started his IT career as a web developer/designer and was primarily engaged with building websites using classic ASP. Soon, his focus got more drawn towards developing client/server applications using the 3GL language Centura/Gupta Team Developer.
Around the end of 2002, he got involved in the integration space, starting off with WebMethods and did this for the next three years with an occasional side step to .NET development. This occasional side step got him in touch with BizTalk Server in 2005 and, since then, he has been involved with most of the integration offerings Microsoft offers both in the Cloud (Microsoft Azure) as on premise.
Currently he is employed as a Principal Consultant at Ignia in Sydney, Australia.
