My name is Michael Kaufmann but most people call me Mike.
I’m the founder and CEO of Xpirit Germany. I work in Germany – but I live with my family in south Spain (Marbella).
I’m a Microsoft Regional Director (RD) I’m also a Microsoft MVP for DevOps ever since 2015 and I write and talk about .Net, Git and GitHub, Azure, DevOps, Scrum, Clean Code and PowerShell.
I’m the author of the book Git for Dummies (in German) and I’m writing my next book about DevOps and GitHub. This time in English.
I help teams and organizations adopting DevOps practices and agile management techniques. I also support big projects and solutions to find a scalable and permanent software architecture.
In my spare time I’m a kitesurfer and a Taekwondo blackbelt.

One thought on “About”
I’m a content developer in the Microsoft Learning and Readiness team. We’ve recently released a series of DevOps online courses as part of a DevOps credential, https://academy.microsoft.com/en-us/professional-program/, and are planning some updates and changes, was wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing some of the content and possibly being involved in some of that content/lab dev work?
Sure let us know what you think,
