Roland Oldengarm - Independent IT Contractor

Living in the coolest little capital Wellington, New Zealand!



I am Roland Oldengarm, an independent IT contractor. I have got a master degree in Systems and Software Engineering 10 years of experience as a developer, consultant, and architect.

I have experience with SharePoint since 2003, and have implemented a wide variety of solutions like intranet, extranet, public facing websites, workflows, etc. I’m always trying to find the best solution for a client, even if that takes trying to find the limits of SharePoint.

With Office 365 it has even become more interesting, but more complex as well. Should clients go on-premises? Or cloud-only? Or in-between with a hybrid solution? And, the world is changing so fast, but I’m keeping up with all the new cool stuff Microsoft is releasing by following blogs and people on Twitter.

Besides SharePoint I’m working on other web technologies like Web API, ASP.NET MVC, and app development like Universal Windows 10 Apps and Cordova Universal Apps. I’ve also contributed to the ngOfficeUIFabric and the Yo Office Generator.

I am also part of a start up called You Just Go since early 2016. We are currently live at, check out the video at the home page to see what we are doing. We currently have a team of 8 people! If you are planning to visit New Zealand, please have a look at

We have moved from The Netherlands to New Zealand early 2014, and we really like it here. New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been!
