New hire at Umbraco HQ: Poul A. L. Jensen

Written by:

Say hello to Poul - the new friendly face behind Umbraco’s cash register. With a love for numbers, Excel as his no. 1 tool and a big smile on his face (when things add up that is), we’re sure that Poul fits perfectly into his new role as Umbraco’s Friendly Cashier. It’s no secret that being a fan of numbers, copywriting isn’t Pouls favourite activity. Actually, when asked to write this blog post Poul got himself a serious case of the classic writer’s-block  - right until someone gave him a brilliant idea: 

 

(I’ve decided to export the next part about Poul from Excel to make it a bit more reader-friendly for you 😉 )

Let me tell you about myself…

I’m 39 years old, born in Holstebro, west of Jutland, but I've lived in Odense since 2001. I’m married with Karin and we have two children (Marie is 5 years old and Anna is 1 year old).

I’m a great fan of:

  • Excel - There is no such thing as a good PIVOT
  • Fishing trips with friends - salmon and sea trout. This is me and from a fishing trip to Norway with my 11+kg salmon. Sorry about the tense smile, I was pretty tired after fishing for about 36 hours:

  

  • Summer holidays including a nice beach - with my girls.
  • Winter holidays with excellent skiing - with the lads.
  • Play and watch soccer - Better at watching than playing though.
  • My god ol’ calculator - classic and still does the job perfectly:

And of course UMBRACO! - the friendly CMS and the friendly community. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and becoming part of the Umbraco family!

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that we have the friendliest Open Source community on this planet. A community that's incredibly pro-active, extremely talented and helpful.

If you get an idea for something you would like to build in Umbraco, chances are that someone has already built it. And if you have a question, are looking for documentation or need friendly advice, go ahead and ask the Umbraco community on Our.
