New blogger: Guido van Brakel

Guido van Brakel

I am a new blogger on the Microsoft Learning Blog, and wanted to introduce myself here. I am Guido van Brakel and work as a System Engineer at Avanade I mostly work on designing and implementing Microsoft technologies. I am a person who likes to do Microsoft exams and to expand my knowledge on several Microsoft technologies. I hold the following technical certifications:

  • Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA 2003)
  • Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE 2003)
  • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist  (MCTS): SharePoint 2010, Configuration (70-667)
  • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): System Center Operations Manager 2007, Configuration (70-400)
  • Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Server Administrator

My articles will be mostly about sharing exam experiences and methods I use to learn new technologies. In a couple of weeks I'm going to do the beta exams of Office 365, so expect some articles from me about that topic. In my work I focus on the following technologies: SharePoint, System Center Operations Manager and Office 365.
