About Hugo Bernier

My name is Hugo Bernier. I have been working with  SharePoint since it was codenamed Tahoe — before it actually became SharePoint 2001.

I’m an independent consultant during the day, and SharePoint and CRM Virtual Technology Specialist (VTS) for Microsoft at night. I specialize in Business Process Management solutions, which involves areas of Content Management, Workflows, Business Intelligence, and Enterprise Application Integration.

I’m originally from Quebec City, but moved to Toronto to learn to speak English. I’m still struggling to master the English language, so I apologize in advance with any spelling mistakes, grammar errors, etc.

I may be the World’s Laziest Developer; I’ll always try to look for ways to use the built-in capabilities of whatever platform I use before I’ll start writing code. When I resort to custom code, it is because there is no built-in way to do it. You’d be surprised what you can do with the out-of-the-box features of SharePoint, Dynamics 365, Flow, etc.!

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?).

When I finally find the answer, I usually think “I should blog about this” (actually– being lazy — I usually think “someone else should blog about this”).

So this blog my not be earth-shattering, mind-blowing, original, or interesting to anyone else. It is really a series of notes to myself so that I don’t have to search again.

If it also happens to help you, even better!
