Well hello there. My name is Derek and I've been in the information technology industry for the past 20 or so yesrs focused mainly on Windows Server environments . Recently, I started a nee job working with a team of Infrastructure professionals as their Azure resource. I am excited to see what the cloud brings to my career and hope to learn dsily how the cloud operates and can help my company suceed.

In addition, I have been blogging for publication off and on for much of that time. Because of the published works and community work done over my career, Microsoft awarded me the MVP award from 2008 - 2018 on an annual basis. This year, my day to day work has kept me quite busy and he content production has slowed. It is my hope that I can start blogging about cloud and distributed computing to help others in the comunity learn how to use these resources to make their businesses and careers better.
