* Early days: Operator of my pocket calculator * Always: Thing whisperer * These days: Cloud hopper Early years writing machine code and real-time languages such as RTL2, for various defence radar detection, analysis and tracking systems for military vehicles and civil aviation. Moved into web development very early. I was one of the first people in the UK to develop in classic ASP, while I was working at Microsoft. Progressed onwards through application development, database development, senior test executive (IBM), solution design, software architect, project manager, head of IT development (Guinness World Records). Since then I ran my own IT consultancy, focusing for most of that time on Windows application development. In recent years, I have moved into Azure technologies. I am currently focusing especially on IoT components like Event Hub, IoT Hub, Stream Analytics, Service Fabric, Logic Apps, Azure Functions, Automation, DocumentDb, Azure SQL/Warehouse/Analytics/Search and File/Blob/Table/Queue storage. Team trained, ARM templates, VSTS build/deploy and other DevOps, including continuous integration. Always involved in data monitoring, alerting and analysis, using various streaming tools and Azure AI/ML technologies, as well as Power BI and syndicating out through Service Bus, PowerApps, etc. Always happy to provide a free "scoping call", to discuss how Microsoft technologies can solve your IT and IoT needs! I am also busy as always in the MSDN and TechNet communities. I post on several MS blogs and moderate a number of forums. I also created and actively maintain various community initiatives, such as a monthly TechNet Guru Competition, weekly TechNet Wiki Contributors Awards, a TechNet Guru Ninja Belt Calculator. Plus many shared tools we use within the TechNet Wiki Council, to collaborate on these various projects. Helping others, spreading the good word, making friends! <3 https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/wikininjas https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas Have you ever won an award?
