MADN was founded in 2011 as WiPhug and focussed solely on Windows Phone development. As soon as Microsoft started ruling the world with their mobile stack and in the end acquiring Xamarin we have expanded our topics to .NET modern application developement. It was at this moment we decided to change the cool WiPhug-name, that nobody knew how to pronounce, into MADN. Our team consists of five people who are passionate in sharing their knowledge to the community.
Bart is an enthusiastic consultant at Sirus for the Microsoft technology stack, mainly focusing on Windows (UWP/WPF), Mobile (Xamarin) and custom .NET development. He’s always open for a new challenge and eager to learn.
Bart keeps a personal blog on which he describes his discoveries and findings on the problems he encounters during his daily tasks.
