Thomas Duff

Thomas Duff (aka “Duffbert”) works as a “regular employee” for a large health insurance company in the Pacific Northwest, and has 20+ years of experience working with and developing applications with collaborative technologies such as Microsoft SharePoint and IBM Lotus Notes. He brings a unique perspective to technology, one that focuses on practical hands-on skills for regular business people. Using regular language and a fair amount of humor, he works closely with business customers, translating their needs and ideas into technology solutions, filtering them from the “techno-speak” that often creates barriers between business and IT areas. He enjoys reading and writing about technology (both articles and books), and he’s been known to show up on stage as a speaker for various conferences if the organizers aren’t careful.
