Hi, my name is Bruno, and you can find me by [elbruno] on most of the usual places: blog, twitter, and this kind of stuff. I’m also a technology enthusiast (I don’t really understand the meaning of this, but it seems to look cool in a short description).
I lead the Innovation Team for Avanade Canada, which means I spend much part of my time trying to figure our the best way to connect real Business with cool technologies.
Because I am the father the greatest kids on the earth, I developed a passion to run (to run a lot!). And I like to make things, to challenge myself and to learn, to learn new stuff all the time.
An now the formal one
