Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Claudio Leite

This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See An index to all Rangers covered on this blog for more details.

Who are You

I´m Claudio Leite, ALM consultant at Allen Informática ( and Scrum Developer Professional, Professional Scrum Master I and Professional Scrum Master II.

What Makes you tick

That´s an easy question. What makes me tick is the challenge! I love to do something that no one had done before or something that it´s not trivial. This is what makes me to stay all night long awake, trying to find the solution.

I love to learn new things specially when working with other people, cause we can learn so much. I think that knowledge is the only thing that we can share with people and you don´t lose, you always win

Where do you live

I live in the Imperial City, Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Where do you call home

I think that the place where I spend most of the time each day. And this is the Bus that I need to take from my home to the clients.

Why are you active in the Rangers Program

First of all, I´ve always used the rangers solutions as a support for some consulting that I did for some customers, and this saved my life a couple times! J and now I have the opportunity to help others and I can work with things that are not common or easy to do, one of my passions. Besides having the opportunity to work and share information with great guys around the world, another passion that I have. How could I be apart from this program where I can do the things that I love ?!

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and Why

Well as I´m new in this world, for now I just have one project, Word4TFS, thus this is the best program! ;)

But I need to state here, the two guides that I used and help me a lot as a “customer” are the Test and Branch and Merge guides. Those were the ones that saved my life as a consultant.
