Meet Henk, a Dutch dev at digital company Heroes. Get ready to learn more about Microsoft Cognitive Services in his talk!


Who are you and what do you have to do with Umbraco?
My name is Henk Boelman, I’m 36 years old and a developer/architect from the Netherlands. Over the past seven years, I have worked a lot with Umbraco. I started using Umbraco with version 4 and created loads of websites with it: small personal websites as well as large corporate websites like the ones for ING, Takeaway and KLM.


How often did you attend Umbraco Festival Germany (formerly known as umbOktoberfest)?
This will be my first time – exciting! ;)


What are your special fields of expertise/interest when it comes to Umbraco?
Continuing delivery in Azure and connecting Umbraco with Azure services. Breaking my head over how to organise my documents and structure Umbraco is one of my favourite parts.


What topic will your talk be about?
I will be talking about Microsoft Cognitive Services and how they can make Umbraco “smarter”, with lots of demos!


What are three words that come to mind when you think of Umbraco?
Fast, secure, easy to use


What is the most special thing about Umbraco community events like UFD?
To see that wherever you go there is an Umbraco community with a great and friendly vibe.
