Hi! I'm Toon Vanhoutte, Azure Solution Architect and Microsoft Azure MVP. My duty is to design and deliver reliable, secure and scalable applications in the Azure cloud. As a solution architect, I'm not scared to take up big challenges and to dive into a development mode.

I'm a quite active member of the Microsoft Azure community and was speaker on several community and company events. Being a Microsoft Certified Trainer and the founder of Your Azure Coach, I love to share my experiences and learn from others during workshops, presentations and blogs. As an Azure MVP, I'm actively collaborating with various Microsoft / Azure product teams.
