Software Engineer, Microsoft Regional Director, and Public Speaker in Leonding, Österreich

Hi, my name is Rainer Stropek. I am co-founder and CEO of software architects serving this role since 2008. At software architects, we develop the award-winning SaaS solution "time cockpit". Additionally, we help our customers to make the move to Cloud Computing and SaaS. Previously, I founded and led two IT consulting firms doing development and consulting work on Microsoft's technology stack.

Beside my job at software architects, I do a lot of work in IT communities. I have written numerous books and articles on C#, web and database development, and Microsoft Azure. I regularly speak at conferences, workshops and trainings in Europe and the US. In 2010, I have become one of the first MVPs for the Microsoft Azure platform. In 2015, I also became a Microsoft Regional Director. Since 2015, I have been chairman of the Coding Club Linz where we organize community events and the local CoderDojo, a free programming club for kids.

I graduated the Higher Technical School Leonding (AT) for MIS with honors and hold a BSc (Hons) Computer Studies of the University of Derby (UK).

Talk to me about: Cloud Computing, SaaS, PaaS, DevOps, Azure, Software Architectures, Software Engineering, .NET, Angular, TypeScript, Web API, C#
