Welcome to my portal. My name is Andrew Butenko and I’m an expert in the area of development for Microsoft Dynamics CRM/365.

I graduated from National Technical University “KPI” Faculty of Computer Science in 2006. Up until 2008, I worked as a .Net/T-SQL developer.

I started working with Microsoft Dynamics CRM in 2008, just after version 4.0 came out. Not a lot of educational materials were available back then, so I had to learn the software on my own.

Now I understand that new developers can improve their skills much faster after taking classes with mentors that have real-world, hands-on experience in the software.

Unfortunately, no classes or mentors were available in Ukraine in 2008, so I had to learn Dynamics CRM by implementing it using the trial and error method.

While with Microsoft Dynamics CRM/365, I worked as a Developer, Team Leader, and Architect. In 2010, I was awarded Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award. I have received the award in each of the last 7 years.

In cooperation with Microsoft Ukraine, I started the first Microsoft Dynamics CRM User Group and contribute to it regularly.

In April 2017 I relocated to the USA and joined “Hitachi Solutions America” where I work now as a Senior Consultant.

Together with my wife I write posts about life outside office and technology in our family blog.
