2018 Retro

I’m not a huge fan of dwelling on past accomplishments, I’m more interested in what’s to come but here goes…

Last year involved the following:

  • Got a new job as Head of Development Services for Sword IT
  • Worked on a large Azure web app with Azure Functions and CosmosDB project straight out the gate
  • Invited onto the board for the Glasgow Azure User Group where I help organise the meetups
  • Spoke at the first Glasgow Azure Global Bootcamp
  • Organising the 2019 Glasgow Azure Global Bootcamp
  • Feature in the top 20 Featured Azure Blogs https://blog.feedspot.com/microsoft_azure_blogs/
  • Sat 8 azure exams (7 betas) within 4 months – I knew zero Azure at the start of 2018.
  • Passed the Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions (70-535 exam)
  • Wrote 49 blog posts mostly on Azure and Azure Devops
  • First ever Open Source PR accepted (for docs.microsoft.com)
  • Self nominated for MVP
  • Passed 2000 followers on Twitter
  • Technical Reviewer for an Azure related book
  • Started recording YouTube video’s on Azure Devops

Things to look forward to

This year more of the same with a visit to Microsoft Ignite (November) planned and hopefully the Ignite Tour in London late Feb.
