Howdy Guys and welcome to my blog!

I have been stumbling around the IT industry for around 14 years but only in the last 6 or so has my career gone in a decent direction. Early on I was Lotus Domino administrator and then a Domino administrator working for BlackBerry, needless to say both of these weren’t the best career moves and neither led to many Job opportunities.

It was in 2011 when I moved back to Brisbane and became a general Windows Sys Admin where I started to get my career back on track. I moved away from BlackBerry Enterprise Server and Lotus Notes and got great hands on experience with VMWare, Hyper-V, Exchange, Windows Server, Citrix, Office 365 and Microsoft Azure amongst other technologies. This inspired me to get my MCSA: Windows Server 2012 and in 2016 I got my MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure. While studying for my MCSE I realised (I should have realised sooner) the great power of PowerShell.

These days I am still a generalist Sys Admin but with a strong interest in PowerShell and Java. It is my goal to move from being a sys admin to a developer. This blog is where I will write any tips/thoughts or whatever on my way to becoming a full time software engineer.

I hope you enjoy…
