Number of MVP Awards:
Network, cloud, mobile and IoT specialist. MSDN, TechNet & Docs community leader. Tech evangelist and passionate lover for widgets of all shapes and sizes.
Early years spent writing machine code and real-time languages such as RTL2, for various defence radar detection, analysis and tracking systems used in missiles and military vehicles. Then moved into civil aviation - air traffic control. Started web development very early. One of the first people in the UK to develop in classic ASP, while I was working at Microsoft. Progressed through application & database development, senior test executive (IBM), solution designer, software architect, project manager, head of IT development (Guinness World Records). A Microsoft fan-boy & dedicated tech obsessive, focusing on web, desktop & mobile dev. Recent years spent deep diving every nut and bolt of Azure. I am very lucky. My hobby is also my job. I am also busy as always in MSDN, TechNet & Docs communities. I post on several MS blogs and moderator across all forums listed above. 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. I love spinning up projects and shared tools that help many groups, such as the TechNet Wiki Council & passionately involved with docs.microsoft.com I also run Autoadmin bots, which moderate thousands of Microsoft forums, in any language. Deleting junk posts, protecting Microsoft customers from spam and phishing scams. I lead a small crew of other MVPs around the world, who manage the service day and night. ----------------------------- https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/wikininjas https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas Have you ever won an award?
