In the development world, we know that each line of code has been built upon what our community has learned the line before it. We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to two amazing collaborators and influencers to coding around the world:
Three-time MVP Mihail Mateev is based in Sofia, Bulgaria and serves as Solutions Architect, Project Manager and Senior Technical Evangelist at Strypes, a Dutch-owned software development company. Over the last year, he has been working on the design of the new version of iOTA, a new generation of the IoT system with backend in Microsoft Azure using some of the latest features in Azure such as DocumentDB and Azure File Service.
When he’s not developing, you can find Mihail leading two user groups: Bulgaria NI & .Net UG and jQuery Sofia UG and serving as chairman of the board of the Bulgarian Software Community, a nonprofit association to manage community conferences in Bulgaria.
Office 365 MVP Patrick Lamber is a long-standing .NET Developer and has offered SharePoint consulting, development, and training services to customers since the launch of SharePoint 2007. Since April 1, 2013, Patrick has been awarded as a SharePoint Server MVP. He is focusing on collaboration and communication topics in combination with SharePoint, Yammer and Office 365.
Patrick is the founder and CEO of NUBO, a group of professionals specializing in SharePoint, Office 365, Azure, and .NET technologies. Patrick speaks three languages (German, Italian, and English), with most of his work focused in Italy, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Patrick is married to Daniela and lives in South Tyrol (Italy). In his spare time he enjoys swimming and salsa-dancing with his wife.
