    Wagner Silveira

    I am Wagner, a Brazilian-born Kiwi living in New Zealand with my wife, two kids, and our little tabby cat. I currently work as Senior Program Manager with the Logic Apps Team, helping to shape the future of this fantastic technology. Before joining Microsoft, I was the Digital Integration Practice Lead at Theta, a consulting company, and Microsoft Partner, where I led a team of nine integration and cloud consultants, while also acting as a Principal Integration Architect. During my eleven years at Theta, I had the chance to work with clients in many industries - including logistics, retail, education, and government - implementing both on-premises and hybrid integration solutions. where Azure Integration Services and Logic Apps had quite a prominent role in those solutions. Prior to Theta, I spent five years working really close to Microsoft, through another NZ based MS Partner - Simpl. During that time, I helped design, and led the implementation and documentation of a BizTalk Server accelerator for the Health Industry - the Health Connection Engine - which was used to prove BizTalk Server capabilities and how to create broker capabilities for end-to-end secure messaging between clients. as well as leading a team of Microsoft Architects and Developers implementing a .NET accelerator for the Cross Enterprise Document Share (XDS) - a Technical Framework defined by IHE. As this technical framework was usually implemented in Java, having a sample in .NET, and proving interoperability between the systems helped to bring new implementations of the framework to .NET systems. Outside work, I am quite passionate about the technical community - I was awarded the MVP Award in Azure between 2017 and 2021 for my contributions to the integration community. I am a comics/fantasy/sci-fi geek since I can remember and spend some of my weekends running D&D games to my kids and their friends or 3D printing and painting miniatures and modules for games. And finally, supporting the community efforts my dear wife does to keep the Brazilian Culture and Language alive in NZ.

  • Software Craftsman @ Sense of Tech

    Adrien Clerbois

    I have been passionate about computers since I was 12 years old, I wrote my first website with a lot of nested tables at 13 years old and that's when I discovered that computers are within everyone's reach. Since then I have evolved well and I am now Microsoft MVP. I was interested in what is really interesting: "Programming"! I was a consultant at Trasys (now called NRB) where I had fun in the industrial field with renowned companies such as Audi, myShopi, etc... I was an Enterprise Lead Designer at Ingenico and I customize the ePayment platform for international customers requirements such as Carrefour. I'm now at my own and built up my company named Sense of Tech. I love to share, so if you see me, don't hesitate to discuss, as they say: "we learn something new every day".

Before joining Microsoft, I was the Digital Integration Practice Lead at Theta, a consulting company, and Microsoft Partner, where I led a team of nine integration and cloud consultants, while also acting as a Principal Integration Architect. During my eleven years at Theta, I had the chance to work with clients in many industries - including logistics, retail, education, and government - implementing both on-premises and hybrid integration solutions. where Azure Integration Services and Logic Apps had quite a prominent role in those solutions. Prior to Theta, I spent five years working really close to Microsoft, through another NZ based MS Partner - Simpl. During that time, I helped design, and led the implementation and documentation of a BizTalk Server accelerator for the Health Industry - the Health Connection Engine - which was used to prove BizTalk Server capabilities and how to create broker capabilities for end-to-end secure messaging between clients. as well as leading a team of Microsoft Architects and Developers implementing a .NET accelerator for the Cross Enterprise Document Share (XDS) - a Technical Framework defined by IHE. As this technical framework was usually implemented in Java, having a sample in .NET, and proving interoperability between the systems helped to bring new implementations of the framework to .NET systems. Outside work, I am quite passionate about the technical community - I was awarded the MVP Award in Azure between 2017 and 2021 for my contributions to the integration community. I am a comics/fantasy/sci-fi geek since I can remember and spend some of my weekends running D&D games to my kids and their friends or 3D printing and painting miniatures and modules for games.
