Putting technology to work – My Story

Putting technology to work to stay productive and ahead, these are the services I use that give me an edge.  In other words, here are some really cool services I think you might want to check out!

As much as I love technology, there has to be a purpose, a reason to use a particular technology. Here I share the services that I personally use that help me stay informed, increase my audience or are just plain cool.

Featuring WordPress, Docker, Statusbrew, Inoreader and more.

Welcome to my site

Thanks for visiting my site, a big hello if you know me already and if you don't, I hope you stick around for a while. I thought I'd tell you a few things about me and my interests.  This will give you some ideas on what you can expect from my site.

I am IT Professional , working for upwards of 15-20 years (gulp!) with computing.  I work for a charity, with around 1300 staff and over a hundred offices around England and Scotland. 

Now is a good time to say, anything I express on this site is my own opinion and isn't affiliated with my employer or anyone else for that mater.

The Modern IT Blog with a difference?

My current professional interests, which I'll start to post about include, in no particular order:

  • Docker
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft Azure
  • WordPress
  • Office 365
  • Data protection
  • Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite​

I am writing from the perspective of an IT Pro for other IT Pros and decision makers, people making a difference with IT delivery. I'll draw upon my experience rather just writing up by the numbers articles. Hopefully, I don't come across too preachy!

This site is experimental, it's running on Docker in a series of containers, which is new technology for me, so I'll be trying out different things.  If the site is down, that is probably why.  The site is rather rough at the moment, I'll be making it a bit more joined up as I go along.  I might even create a Twitter account, where I can get better connected.

Hope you like my site, look out for new articles over the coming weeks. I have already posted my first article about ransomware, which you could check out in the meantime.​
