Year in Review 2018

Reflecting back on the previous year was again a year of big changes for me. From a professional standpoint I changed jobs mid year in 2018 and I also took on a new role working from home. This has been a huge change for me and has taken some time to get comfortable with and I have a great new appreciation for those folks doing it and who have been able to do it for an extended period.

From a travelling standpoint, I didn’t do much of it other than flying a couple of times to the Midwest for the new company I work for. So again the new job and new schedule had a lot to do with my lack of travel this year.

On the community side of things I was able to attend PowerShell Saturday Chattanooga for the first time. If you want to read more about that you can read about it here.

I also attended in May the events in Nashville for Cloud Friday and SharePoint Saturday Nashville. Both of these events were excellently done. Some of the best conference food I have ever had was here. I wanted to do a big shout out to @JimBobHoward for putting on a couple of great events! I really enjoyed both and learned more from both events as well!

If you have a chance to attend either one of these events, I highly recommend it.

This year was also the first time I went through my first Microsoft 365 migration. I am currently still learning a lot about 365 and what really blows me away if how many services are involved in the total offering.

Trying to keep up on all the latest updates with this many services is already a struggle, but it’s exciting at the same time for the pace of changes and how often the service is updated.

Finally this year I dipped my toe into the GitHub waters. I created a repository online that I will gradually start posting my awfully written scripts and other helpful info to as well.

Keep an eye out there and I will try to mention those by twitter and other places as I add new content to it.

Thanks again to everyone for helping grow my knowledge in the community and I hope my posts here have helped increase others knowledge as well.

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2019!
