Edwin van der Thiel

Technology Consultant Microsoft

Ever since his childhood, Edwin has had a broad interest in technology, especially in its application. For this reason, he chose to study AI, a more practical application of logic and math. For Edwin, after university in 2004, the world didn’t quite seem ready to adopt AI practices in everyday life, and as many of his colleagues, he also switched. In his case, his interest went to the field of systems engineering and architecture, working in Linux and Windows infrastructures. In 2011, his passion for creating new solutions led him back to the field of software development, where Sogeti offered the opportunity to make this switch. Since then he has worked with different customers at various locations – among which Netherlands, India, Oman and recently joined Joleen and Menno in a Blockchain inspiration session. The past years, he has been active in different communities and the sharing of knowledge. Among others, these are the Microsoft Heroes, the OmniChannel core team, teaching courses on JavaScript, Git, NodeJS and Blockchain, speaking at the Heroes Academy and Microsoft’s Techdays.
