About the site
This site is a collection of "extra bits", dedicated to that last bit of logic, the part that makes a difference. These extra bits are not usually documented or perhaps are not clear but I'll be doing my utmost to unpick and share the things I've learned or found useful.
If it's not clear not everything on the site will have been proactively discovered, of course some things will have caught me out personally. Working in this industry it's par for the course with a key factor being how you recover and learn from such set-backs. I hope that by sharing I can help others to learn about new topics, expand on existing knowledge and avoid tripping over the same pitfalls.
I'm a passionate technologist and learner, throughout my 10 years in the IT industry I've picked up a variety of technical and professional experience. I'd describe myself as a problem solver first and foremost and while I have the most experience with M365 and Azure SaaS I pride myself on being able to pick up new technologies and concepts quickly. If I had to pin myself into a role definition, it'd be as an architect but with a focus on practicality. The corporate IT landscape is not a lab and therefore we cannot be too precious about the perfect solution - it doesn't exist. The practical architect, at least to me, is taking something from concept to design to implementation, working within constraints, perceiving and responding to realities and ensuring that the solution is not materially compromised along the way.
