Sebastian Pabst (The father who can also teach you a lot about SCOM) [Interview]

No comments

Sebastian is an excellent example of a professional that always keeps his family first. Therefore, I think he is a unique member of our growing community; I believe that the best quote that describes him is:

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” – Albert Einstein

Sebastian spends most of his time with his family. He is a husband and the father of a two-year-old son. He spends the rest of his time focusing on SCOM solutions. This includes creating customer-specific monitoring and automation requests.


The first time I noticed Sebastian was when he retweeted my open source projects. I got really curious about his opinion on Open Source. And so I called up we chatted for a few minutes, and that’s it, I knew that this was the guy that was going to be featured on The March in. So, Let’s get know him a little better.

What do you think of Microsoft’s change in its approach to open source?

In my opinion, this change of mind was necessary and inescapable, as a fight against the open source community would merely have been hopeless. If you can’t defeat an enemy, make him your friend.

Do you use open source in your projects?

Not yet. But there are projects from open source operating systems. So it’s only a matter of time.

Do you use visual studio to develop monitoring packages?

At the moment I mainly work with Visual Studio 2017 Pro with the authoring extensions. Occasionally with Silect’s MP Author.

After work, house or beer with friends?

Home and after work beer in the garden with the family and neighbors.

Star Wars or Star Trek?

It’s a tough decision, but if I had to decide: Star Wars!

Thank you

“The Force will be with you. Always.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi
