About me

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be." - Douglas Adams

Hello and welcome to my site. I am Aleksandar Draskovic and I am an IT specialist from Dublin, Ireland where I live since 2015. I am in my 30's, married, with three kids and a dog. Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegowina, I lived for some time in Belgrade, Serbia where I worked as system administrator for a big publishing company. I also lived in Mönchengladbach for almost 10 years and I worked as a SharePoint consultant for a number of German consulting companies. I moved to Dublin in May 2015 and since then I work as a Senior Service Engineer in Microsoft Office 365 / SharePoint Online Dedicated Platform Transition Team. I have over fifteen years of experience and have been part of various projects for many exceptional companies during these years.

 

Certifications

Certifications are important part of my professional life. They help me to demonstrate my competence even before I meet a potential client. During a process of gaining a certification, I have an opportunity to get a full impression of my strengths and weaknesses and to learn a lot of new things. Those are the reasons which always push me toward gaining new certifications and refreshing existing ones.
