About Me

My name is Hugo Bernier. I started working with SharePoint back when it was codename: Tahoe. Before it actually became SharePoint 2001.

I'm grew up near Quebec City, but moved to Toronto to learn to speak English. I have yet to master the English language. I apologize in advance for any spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, or sentences that don't make sense.

I'm a former McKinsey & Company consultant, but a developer at heart. I use my experience to help bridge the ubiquitous gap between business and technology.

I work almost exclusively with Microsoft technologies. SharePoint and CRM are two of my favorite things.

I call myself the World's Laziest Developer. I'll always try to look for ways to use the built-in capabilities of a system before writing custom code. When I resort to custom code, it is because there is no built-in way to do it. Nothing makes me angrier than people writing custom code.

I am autistic. As a consultant, I make sense of chaos in every engagement by having a process for everything.

As a certified SCRUM Master, my specialty is to fix struggling projects.

Once in a while I find myself researching the same thing over and over again; things that I think should be obvious and easy to find, but that no one has bothered to write about (probably because it is so obvious for everyone but me?).

When I finally find the answer, I usually think "I should blog about this". Actually, the lazy person in me usually thinks "someone else should blog about this".

The posts in this blog my not be earth-shattering, mind-blowing, original, or interesting to anyone else. It intends to be a series of notes to myself so that I don't have to search again.

If it also happens to help you, even better!
