Welcome to the maiden episode of 'Talks on Software Craftsmanship'. Your weekly podcast about software craftsmanship, STEAM, and tangible topics.
Hi, my name is Jochen Kirstätter, also known as "JoKi".
I'm a software craftsman, blogger, community founder, and speaker. Although I have been awarded as Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (recently for Developer Technologies as well as Visual Developer for Visual FoxPro in the past) I don't work for Microsoft. The MVP award is a recognition of my community contributions and activities to engage with Microsoft services and products over years.
