About Benjamin Abt

Hej,

my name is Ben, I am 31 years young. I live in Stuttgart (Germany) and Stockholm (Sweden).
Currently I am a Principal Consultant for cloud, smart factory and IoT development, focused on the next generation of connected industry at Alegri International Service GmbH.

At a young age I took my first steps in programming with Tcl/TK before I switched to C# in 2002. Before I switched 2007 to ASP.NET MVC, I collected the first web experiences with PHP and ASP.NET WebForms. Right now, I'm focused on cloud and IoT architectures based on .NET Core, ASP.NET, NoSQL and SQL, Docker and various cloud platforms like DigitalOcean, Amazon AWS - but especially on Microsoft Azure.

In addition to professional development of software, I run the largest German C# community myCSharp.de as administrator and moderator since 2011.

I also actively participate in open source projects, talk on conferences and user groups and run my technology blog. On GitHub you can find me as BenjaminAbt and SchwabenCode and I'm on NuGet, too.

Microsoft has awarded me the Microsoft MVP Award 2015, 2016 and 2017-2018 for my activities.
