Andres Del Rio Benito has been working with BizTalk since around 2004, and all the way through all its versions until BizTalk 2010, playing over time developer; consultant, architect and development lead roles in different projects, being also the official BizTalk trainer for different teams across Accenture CIO and Avanade Spain.
Apart from the work around BizTalk, he expended many years in Avanade and Accenture CIO Enterprise Architecture team, involved in different initiatives not only around BizTalk, but also many other technologies along the Microsoft Stack, until he left Spain (and so Avanade/Accenture) with his wife to find new challenges in London where, after expending some time as a BizTalk contractor for Microsoft UK, he currently works for Wipro as a Senior Architect delivering solutions to clients in the Financial Services and Insurance sectors.
“I met Howard around 2007 when we worked together on a BizTalk ESB implementation project and, as we did get on very well, we kept contact since then. When I received his email about joining him on this amazing adventure of co-authoring a book I felt really honoured about it, and my immediate answer was ‘Absolutely yes’. That led me to work with other extraordinary professionals like Steef-Jan, Tord and other very influencing guys in the BizTalk community.
