Instructor at Udemy on Office 365

I am an IT professional who started its career as a computer programmer on IBM Mainframes. My programming experience involved Cobol and some variation of the Cobol language used in the military. As time went by the Microcomputers came along and I was fascinated by them because they were affordable to people. It allowed me to to experiment by building micro computers, installing and configuring software, upgrading hardware, software and teaching users how to use the computer applications.

I've taken courses all the way from programming to hardware and then to networking. But nothing is more challenging and rewarding than working hands on. You gain experience, knowledge, develop patience, troubleshooting techniques, workflow and networking with other professionals.

After some amount of time I became a Network system administrator on different Networks until i became a Windows NT network admin. I have worked with Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, SQL and other Windows networking products. I worked on networks of over 5,000 users spread all across the US. The smallest network I worked on had about 1,800 users.

Eventually I was given the task to migrate our company's Microsoft Exchange users to Microsoft Office 365 in the Cloud. That project allowed me to work side by side with Microsoft Field Engineers and set up Office 365 for our company. We started from the ground without any experience on Office 365.

I gained a great deal of appreciation for the Office 365 cloud and the applications and technology advances that the cloud provides.

Once smartphones and tablets became widely used at the workplace I began working with several Mobile Device Management products in order to secure the data on the devices and at the same time protect our internal network from being compromised. Office 365 provided the functionality to integrate mobile devices with Office 365 and continues to provide applications for those devices therefore making Office 365 as the cloud of choice for the mobile workforce.

As part of the experience I gained by those that taught me I feel the need to teach others and make it available for the masses and Udemy is the best vehicle for that. With Udemy there are no barriers between what can be taught and to whom. We can reach everyone on any country or language and teach, what we had the blessing of learning in our life.
