I gave quite a lot of thought to what my first post should be; a detailed how-to, a cautionary tale of experience or an excited new feature set. However, I decided that all of that can wait. What is more important initially is to introduce myself so you know a little bit about whose posts you are reading.

My name is Joe Carlyle and I am an Azure Consultant based in Dublin, Ireland. This blog is something I have been meaning to create for quite some time and I’m very happy to be eventually starting it.

As you have probably guessed by the name, this will be a blog about Microsoft Azure which is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. Part of my reason for setting this blog up is that I believe it is one of the most exciting areas of technology that anyone could currently be working in. The platform itself is vast and skillsets required are broad, therefore I don’t believe that any one person can be an expert of the whole platform. There are simply too many services available.

The options within Azure that this blog will primarily focus on are as follows:

  • IAAS and everything that goes with it
  • Azure Active Directory
  • Intune
  • Security & Identity
  • Monitoring
  • Automation

My initial plan is to try to post something that is useful, interesting or both, at least once a week. Obviously if there is anything new and exciting, this will also be added into this mix. Once the blog is up and running, I also plan on introducing a Mailbag post to answer any questions that may have arisen from previous posts, or to simply take requests for future ones.

It is my opinion that for a blog to be successful and benefit all those who use it, it must offer a degree of interaction. All of my professional contact details are listed, please feel free to get in touch!
