#MVPbuzzChat with Gill Cleeren

Gill Cleeren - Tienen, Belgium, Snowball.be - Pluralsight | about.meFor Episode 101 of the #MVPbuzzChat series, I connected with Microsoft Regional Director and Developer Technologies MVPGill Cleeren (@gillcleeren), a consultant, Xamarin MVP, Pluralsight author, and the CTO at Xpirit in Belgium. He is also the founder of Techorama, the biggest IT conference in Belgium, and runs Visug, the .NET user group in Belgium.

In this episode, Gill and I walk through his path into technology, and discuss recommendations for those graduating or entering the workforce on where to focus — while also recognizing that many of the “fresh faces” we see in the Microsoft ecosystem are older and/or more focused on the enterprise, albeit more experienced. We then talk about some ways that we in the community can reach out and encourage younger people to get involved with Microsoft technology, and with the community.

If you would like to follow Gill or reach out and connect with him, you can find him on TwitterFacebookLinkedIn, Instagram, and GitHub.
