Who Am I? Well please to meet you ...I'm Pascal van de Bor and I work as an EUC Consultant/Architect for all kinds of customers. I have been working in IT for ages, doing some networking, Linuxes/Unixes, storage and a little scripting in PowerShellCLI / Perl / PHP along the way. Virtualization became my main area of expertise when I came in contact with VMware and later on a little Citrix and Hyper-V. I work, and worked, at different companies that need EUC expertise on a project/contract basis. I do this at my employer ITQ at the moment. Going from assessing and designing, consultancy, implementation and on the job training for the EUC team. Main focus is the VMware product suite, but I’m not afraid of a little outside of the box. It’s all about synergy isn’t it…. In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 I am awarded vExpert. Great to be part of the community. Outside this blogging space, I love some gaming on the Xbox One, riding my motorcycle around (for the people that only see a flash, I currently ride a Yamaha FZ6-N S2) or playing one of my guitars (Gibson SG, Ibanez electric for shredding and Ibanez steel-string) and listening to (and visiting) music. A little preference for the loud music, but can also enjoy other genres. If you want to get in touch, ask here, follow my twitter feed. Please do connect! - See you around
