FinOps Architect & Practice lead
I am Stijn Depril. I love technology in general. I’m a big cheerleader of companies adopting new operational models and dare the change the way they operate their operations over time.
I have over 15 years of IT experience working at the forefront of this change. I worked for some well known vendors like Dell, Dell EMC, VCE, VMware in recent years.
I work on helping customers adopt the cloud successfully. Not from a technology or architectural point of view. The focus here is on the financial part of cloud. It triggered me years ago that customers who are adopting cloud with small use cases were not yet thinking about cost control. However once you are doing cloud at scale you need the people, processes and tools to support your adoption and keep the invoice balanced.
My goal as a trainer is taking you on a journey of understanding. Better knowledge of the importance of cloud financial management and the ways it can be introduced in a company are fundamental pieces of the training. I love to share my knowledge with you and find answers to your challenges by giving you a straight-forward but pragmatic answer.
I’m Anthony, AWS enthusiast, trying to put a focus on the application integration side of
things and I have a huge interest in event driven architectures and anything that is security
I’ve actually never thought I would be a trainer, it was only after some people
encouraged me to do it that I took the step to make it official.
Social interaction is gotta be my favorite thing when it comes to training, listening to
people's stories on how they tackle the day to day challenges they face and how they
eventually overcome it, or how they are in the process of getting there.
My goal is to speak at a huge conference. That seems like such an amazing thing to do, I’ll
get there one day.
I'm Bruno Buyck and I’m actually the laziest IT guy you can ever imagine! I’ve been automating repetitive tasks since 2007. I automate with technologies such as Amazon, Azure, M/O365, VMWare, Hyper-V, ActiveDirectory, Exchange, and so on.
I’m a Microsoft Certified Trainer and in 2019, I decided to partner with The Campus for their PowerShell portfolio. I love to prove that PowerShell can change your world and is really WTF! As a trainer, the most important thing for me is to share real life examples and insights with students which can help them deliver results immediately.
I have been using AWS since 2015 and I work with businesses ranging from start-ups to enterprises. I provide architectural and operational support and share my experiences along the way. Currently my favourite services are CloudFormation, Lambda, KMS, CloudFront, and Lambda@Edge.
I'm a very early cloud adopter. I started out at a local computer store and tried ever since to achieve more. With every step along the way, I gathered more skills and deepened existing skills, leading to the then new MS Azure ecosystem. Starting early on the Azure Service Management infrastructure side in 2014, a lot has been learned about DO’s and DON'Ts, combining with the on-premises side.
I never looked back, strongly believing that this is the future and the path I should take. Nowadays, I specialize in teaching the DO’s to customers along with continually gathering field experience at different customers and projects.
I was a translator with a passion for languages before I found my way to the data world. Since then, I have tackled data analysis and data visualization projects in both Power BI and SAP Business Objects and I have enjoyed every one of them.
As a trainer, I love sharing the ins and outs of a tool with the participants and slipping in some tricks that I have found to be very useful in the past. It really is wonderful to share a participant's excitement about a certain feature or see them run with the information in the course and come up with creative ideas and engaging visualizations.
I am committed to create, uncover, and teach everything there is to know about 'Graph Literacy'. I switch on light bulbs with people – facilitating those ‘aha moments’ to change mindsets and open up new possibilities. I do not only train people in uncovering insights, I train people to love their data and to turn them into data artists.
I have over 20 years experience in the information technology industry with a clear focus on implementing value added business solutions. I'm a specialist in delivering Business Intelligence solutions using the Qlik platform software products. In addition to leading Qlik BI projects and working as business analyst / QlikView and Qlik Sense certified developer, I participate in cultivating new business opportunities, provide training and support several customers. My ability to quickly identify business needs, combined with extensive experience in small and large enterprise IT environments, enables me to deliver valuable and insightful business solutions.
