My name is Antonio Vargas. I am Portuguese, born and raised in the Azores Islands in Portugal, from where i left to live in Lisbon, age 19.
I am an IT Consultant, and although i am Certified in a variety of vendors, such as Cisco, VMWare, Symantec, HP and Microsoft, my main focus and my day to day work is around the Microsoft Unified Communications portfolio.
At the moment i work as a Solutions Architect, focused on Microsoft Exchange on premises, Office 365, and when i have some spare time, some Microsoft Lync projects. I live in London, United Kingdom, and work for customers based both on the EMEA region and the United States.
I have 15+ years of experience in IT, and almost 30 Microsoft exams completed with success during my career. In July 2013 i got my biggest professional achievement, and since then i am proud to be a part of the restrict Elite group Microsoft Certified Masters (or more recently named Microsoft Certified Solutions Master).
I just completed my first contribution, as a technical writer, to a Microsoft Lync Cookbook, and I plan to embrace other similar projects soon.
On my free time (when i have some) i love to travel, watch some good TV series and Movies, and play some PlayStation (please don’t tell anyone @Microsoft 🙂 ).
I am always available for new challenges.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
