Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Niel Zeeman

This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. SeeRanger Index (Who is Who?)for more details.

Who you are?

clip_image003 I am a wine drinker with a programming problem…but seriously…I am the guy who quit my job in 2010 to start South Africa’s first consultancy focussed solely on ALM, TFS and Visual Studio!

When I am not drinking wine or customising TFS for my clients, I am an amateur photographer, artisan bread baker and (I would like to think…) a semi-respectable husband. clip_image001

What makes you “tick”?

Technology, solving problems, learning and making or building new things. In short : new experiences.

Where you live?

The best city in the world…Cape Town, South Africa

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

South Africa is a fairly isolated country with a “relatively” small or closed IT community. The Rangers connects me (and by extension, my community) with a broader community allowing me to tap into a much larger pool of expertise to learn from, share and collaborate with to the benefit of the ALM community at large.

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
