Want to see what I'm doing in the field? This page contains everything for all guest blogs, podcasts, videos, public appearances, and video courses that I create or participate in.
Over the course of 2020, I've worked with several video training vendors to bring you the best possible courses available.

GitHub Public Repositories
I commit and push code for anything from little scripts in Python, PowerShell, HCL, JS, and C# that I find useful to full-fledged wrappers and applications! All of the code related to my content is also available on GitHub.
Azure Content Hero
I am very humbled and excited to be part of the Azure Content Heroes community! The Content Hero badge is given to 1 out of 250 people around the world for sharing valuable knowledge at conferences, meetups or other events. Recipients of this rare award have created original content, sample code or learning resources and documented and shared their experiences and lessons to help others to build on Azure.
As of March 19th, 2020, I am an official ambassador for the DevOps institute! The DevOps institute provides many contributions globally that include DevOps certifications, live training, virtual training, conferences, and many more! DevOps Institute Ambassadors are hand-picked thought leaders and subject matter experts. I'm delighted and humbled to join the effort!
I love creating written content, but I really love creating videos on YouTube. I feel that it gives me an opportunity to show emotion, smiles, and how excited I am to teach. You can find my YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/clouddevengineering
Guest Blog Contributions
Here are a few extras!
One of my favorite, and quite frankly, most popular Infrastructure-as-code tools is Terraform by Hashicorp. If you're interested in Terraform, check out a 2-day bootcamp I did on Cloudskills, which you can find here.
Interested in learning from a comprehensive and informative DevOps bootcamp? Check out my segment on the CloudSkills.io DevOps bootcamp where I deep-dive into Terraform in Azure here.
Public speaking gives me the ability to get away from behind the keyboard and talk to other techies in the industry. Face-to-face interactions are amazing for so many reasons. I love the feeling of knowing that I'm truly helping people by seeing them face-to-face. That's why I do this after-all, to help people with their technical goals.
Here are a few speaking/panel engagements I've done in 2020.
