Alexander Meijers


Who am I? My name is Alexander Meijers and I was born on May 19th, 1971. Father of daughter and son. Love to read technical stuff like articles and books, play on my guitar and do sports like fitness and running. I have been working in the IT sector since 1992. Primarily started with object oriented programming with C++ on Windows based application platforms. Later on I switched to the Microsoft .NET platform programming in C# and became a SharePoint enthusiast. My interest for Microsoft products and technologies has grown in the years. I got introduced with the SharePoint product when SharePoint 2003 came on the market. The love and happiness feeling I still get from the product , has made this product to become my core knowlegde.

SharePoint as product is not a "click, next and finish" product. Such a platform expects from you to have a major knowlegde about installation, configuration and maintenance. I 'm highly experienced in handling such tasks. Also executing SharePoint implementations from a project perspective view is one of my specialities. Due to the fact that the SharePoint platform depends heavenly on other Microsoft products, my knowledge also extends to other Microsoft products like Office, SQL Server, Windows, Active Directory and Exchange Server. I have been involved in a large amount of SharePoint implementations. These implementations ranged from small, medium to large business projects handling in some cases more than 100K plus end-users. My multi discipline allows me to handle a large set of roles in projects like; hard-core development, lead consultant, liason between business and IT, business advisory, Project management, lead Architect. In many cases running multiple projects (4+) together at that same time. The last few years I have been working on SharePoint implementations with a number of customers like; BAM, TNT, Facilicom, TenneT, NS, Lost Boys international, Sanoma Uitgevers, Logica, Inter-IKEA, Dutch Space, Hogeschool Utrecht, Spil Games, Telindus, Multiple projects at Rabo Vastgoedgroep; SVn website, Rabo Vastgoedgroep website, Intranet migration, ShowCase, Intranet functionality extensions and more. These projects incorporates MOSS 2007 solutions, SharePoint 2010 solutions, Migrations to SharePoint 2010, implementing intranet solutions and implementing internet websites based on Sha
