I am a developer with a passion for DevOps and Cloud technologies. I have nearly 20 years experience developing mulit-tier, multi-user applications using Microsoft development technologies, from VBA v1.0 to .NET 4.5.
I have spent 16 years designing, developing and supporting desktop and intranet applications for a variety of healthcare related specialities – both clinical and administrative. These applications included multi-user, multi-tier, database driven, client-server applications that were designed to support between 1 and 1000 simultaneous users. I also specialised in application integration technologies. I have implemented and supported clients in large hospitals in New Zealand, USA and the UK
My passion is DevOps, cloud services integration and operations automation technologies with a focus on the Microsoft family of tools (Windows Server etc). I have a strong background in Windows PowerShell and Desired State Configuration as well as other DevOps/CI/CD technologies. I am comfortable providing DevOps and infrastructure automation for Windows Server environments both on premises and in the cloud.
I am a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate in Windows Server 2012 and am working towards an MSCD in Cloud technologies.
I contribute to multiple open source automation projects as well as maintain some of my own. My specific expertise is on infrastructure as code using PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC).
