"The only frontiers are in your mind" Hi, my name is Jochen Kirstätter, also known as "JoKi". I'm a software craftsman, blogger, community founder, and speaker. Although I have been awarded as Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (recently for Developer Technologies as well as Visual Developer for Visual FoxPro in the past) I don't work for Microsoft. The MVP award is a recognition of my community contributions and activities to engage with Microsoft services and products over years. I founded the now largest IT community in Mauritius, and organise the annual Developers Conference since 2015. Following my interest in cross-platform technologies I'm also an organiser of the Google Developer Group (GDG) Mauritius. My first computer was a Commodore C64, and since I've been hooked up with software development and computer technology. During my days at university I started to explore Linux, and run multiple operating systems in friendly harmony on various systems.
