Yep, its the 1st of January 2019 and with some new found inspiration and some heartburn (champagne last night) I got up this morning and decided this year will be the year that I will start this blog (must be a new years day thing). I have been pondering over getting this blog thing up and running for a couple years now and finally decided that this will be the year to get it done. Why you might ask. Well, I really like helping people and figured that this would be a good way to start doing that in a public forum. My intention with this blog is to share my journey delivering cloud solutions so yes this is not going to be a record of my personal memoirs but rather my professional journey and some of the technical problems that I face on a day to day basis. Currently, I’m happily employed as a Senior Cloud Engineer at the Ministry of Education in New Zealand and I am part of a team that helps to implement cloud solutions that help deliver outcomes for the Ministry and the New Zealand public. I have some high hopes for this blog and what it will achieve and hope that you will enjoy this journey with me.
