Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Daniel Meixner

Who you are?

I’m Daniel. I’m a consultant for TFS at conplement AG in Nuernberg/Germany.

What makes you “tick”?DanielMeixner_OnStageInANonWorkEnvironment

Years ago I’ve been in product development for medical software for some years. Retrospective I notice that we always had the same challenges  over and over again. Most of these are addressed by TFS. I wonder how much benefit my team could have taken from a platform like TFS…

Sometimes people just don’t know that a platform like TFS even exists. Let’s tell them.

Others just don’t know how to use it properly. Let’s tell them, too.

Outside of IT I’m a music enthusiast. I’ve been playing in several bands over the past years. For me that’s a very nice contrast to all the serious IT business.

Where do you live?


Where is the place you call home?

Well, I really like Nuernberg. But when I drive up the motor way to the north a little and see the beautiful Staffelberg ( ) to the right side, it always feels like truly coming home.

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

In the past the documents and solutions of the rangers really helped me getting my stuff done and I learned a lot at customer sites. Now it’s time for me to give something back.
