Azure Certifications & Updates

It has been just about a month and a half since my first day at Microsoft! I’ll soon be in the field helping customers on their journey to the cloud. As part of my training I’ve been able to obtain three Azure certifications I’ve been looking to obtain for some time!

It feels great to validate my knowledge on Azure especially in the Development and DevOps areas. I’m also happy to say that I am now a Microsoft Certified Trainer! This will assist me in training customers on new Azure technologies and validates my experience in the field. As a result I’ve updated my professional profile here on the blog. I do intend to continue publishing content here, but it will still be a bit of time before that happens while I get ramped up in my new role.

The Next Chapter

I’m happy to announce that starting April 1st 2019 I will be joining Microsoft as a Senior Premier Field Engineer!

My time at Rackspace has been life changing. The past few years I had the opportunity to lead the technical vision of our Microsoft Private Cloud product, where we began to use more and more Azure to manage on premise resources. Prior to that I worked with some of our largest customers and help them make complex technical decisions about their architectures. And along the way I made some lifelong friends. But it is now time for the next phase of my career.

It’s long been a career goal of mine to join Microsoft and I feel like now is one of the most exciting times to join. Over the past 5+ years I have worked very closely with many employees at Microsoft in a variety of different programs. In my new role I will be focused entirely on Microsoft Azure Technologies. I’ll be helping customers navigate the complex landscape of cloud services so that they can have a successful journey. I can’t wait to get started!

There will be a bit more travel involved in this new role so things here will tend to quiet down a bit. But I do still intend to share my experiences and things I’ve learned along the way. I’m looking forward to the new challenge!
