Day 1/100 Days Of Kubernetes
It's taken me a while to get to Day 1 on this journey. For Day 1/100 I thought that I would create a 'Terminology Primer'. The aim of this is to help people who are just beginning their Kubernetes journey to get familiar with the various terms that they will encounter.
Moving my blog (Part 1) and getting to grips with Bicep!
Inspired by a recent presentation by Chris Reddington at the Limerick DotNet Azure User Group, I have made the decision to move this blog from GitHub Pages and Jekyll to an Azure Storage and Hugo based deployment. I will also be making use of GitHub Actions to implement a CI/CD workflow for my blog.
DevOps Engineer Expert - AZ-400
If you follow me on Twitter or LinkedIn you will know that I recently passed the AZ-400 exam and earned the Microsoft Certified: DevOps Engineer Expert certification. I am delighted to be able to add this badge to my collection. A lot of early mornings and late nights were put in to pass this one. Coming from an IT Ops background there was a steep learning curve for some of the more developer focused subject areas.
Azure Security - Easy Wins - Part 1
Following on from my 'Looking Foward' post, where I talked about the plan for 2021 and beyond and how I wanted to focus in on security, I want to start a small series called 'Azure Security - Easy Wins'. In this series I will talk about quick, easy changes you can make to your Azure tenant to improve your security posture. In the future, there will also be some video content to go with this series.
Originally, I wasn't going to write a 'Year In Review' article. Mainly because I had only started blogging towards the end of 2020 and felt that, with COVID and permanent 'work from home', there wasn't much to write about. In the end, I decided to combine a quick look back at 2020 with a look ahead to 2021 and beyond.
Azure Security Engineer Associate - AZ-500
Firstly, let me apologise for being so quiet on the blog front. Things have been super busy in the Irish Techie world, with work, study, and family commitments. Look forward to a lot more content in 2021!
Secondly, I am pleased to report that I achieved my goal of passing the AZ-104 and AZ-500 before the end of 2020! On December 7th, I got to add another Acclaim badge to my collection.
