About

My name is Didier Van Hoye and I’m IT pro that has been at “IT” for over 15 years. I’m convinced you cannot design what you cannot build and vice versa. So while I’m an “Architect” I’m still in the trenches with my boys and gals. Empty suits or hollow bunnies are neither wanted nor needed. In IT you live by the sword and you die by the sword. There is no hiding when you mess up, all our mistakes are in plain sight of everyone using what we build.

I have what some people like to refer to as “alphabet soup” that I’m allowed to use since I earned the titles those acronyms represent. I’m an MCP, MCSD, MCDBA, MCSA, MCSE & MCTP and, last but not least, I’m been presented with the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award under the Virtual Machine expertise.

In the end what I write here represents my views and opinions on certain matters and these are valid at the time they are written. These do not represent my employer’s, client’s or any other entity’s stance on the subject at hand. On the contrary, these writings are my personal and/or my professional take on the subject regardless of my employer or client. They stem from well over a decade of thinking, working, discussing and collaborating with colleagues, businesses and consultants whilst exploring ways to deliver value through ICT. I’m just giving you my opinions. So basically this makes me opinionated, but at least I recognize and acknowledge that. :-)
