Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Ricardo Serradas

Who are you? foto2

I am an ALM Consultant at BR Soluções Integradas, a Microsoft Partner here in Brazil. I hold a bachelor’s degree at Universidade Cruzeiro do Sul for Computer Science. I work with Technologies since 2002, where I first worked as a developer with Visual Basic. I had my first contact with Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server, also called Team System at that time in 2007. Since then, I did not stop to work with this platform and I've got the target to be an ALM specialist. As I really like to speak in public and share my knowledge with others, I started contributing to the community with conference speaking and blog posts. Nowadays, the activity which takes the best of my attention and curiosity are the things related to DevOps and Software Testing Automation. I really like to write some custom plugins or tools to the platform and record some demonstration videos.

What makes you “tick”?Foto1

I am an ALM Consultant, so anything around this subject call my attention and curiosity. My preferred disciplines inside ALM are Development and Operations. Dealing with Release Management and Continuous Integrations takes the best of me.

Where do you live?

I live in São Paulo, Brazil

Where do you call Home?

Wherever I am with my fiancée, I am home.

Why are you active in the ranger program?

Even still not being a Ranger, I already like to create my own solutions related to the Microsoft’s ALM platform and publish it to the community. Being part of this team will surely help me create and contribute with more powerful tools, documents and products.

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

I haven’t started yet, even because I didn’t know I could do it without being one of them. However, I cannot wait to do that and collaborate to the projects and the program.
