Dennis

Dennis Zille is part of the byte5 developers team since June 2015. Even before day one of his work he rushed into Umbraco topics. And for sure, for him now, it's no an option to get an Umbracian, when he attended Umbraco CodeGarden during his second week at byte5. 

As an ASP.NET and AngularJS specialist he started some of his first projects on his own. And as a byte5 dev team member he finished the certification course as an Umbraco Certified Developer with 10/10.
