Welcome to the site, my name is Jeff and I have been working in the IT field since the early 90's. Most of what I post here is related to work that I do for the various companies that I have worked for over the years. Please feel free to look around ask questions or post comments (if available).
Feel free to reach out:
I’ve been very focused on my work lately, and it’s been gratifying. I’ve learned a great deal in the past few weeks. So let’s recap, I’m working on a solution enabling you to deploy resources into any cloud. At work, this revolves around using terraform, but for the work I do off the clock, I’m hoping to be able to target platform-specific templating languages. The solution at work leverages an Excel Spreadsheet to gather inputs; this is genuinely a non-optimal solution, but, at the time, it’s what everyone decided was the correct choice.
So I’ve been working on some really fun things at work that tie into some of the projects that I’m personally working on, which I guess is par for the course for me. This past Friday I was struggling with re-writing a PowerShell module to leverage my new C# library. The issue was the output was returning blank data, annd it wasn’t readily apparent. It was only after piping through ConvertTo-Json that I was able to even see the issue at all.
Introducting GithubClient, I started working on this because we had a need to pull information from one of our Organizational repositories. It started out as a POC with all the code written in the Controller for the API. Once that was working I decided that I would like a little more flexibility, and while I could write the code in a class within the API, I felt that perhaps having an external library would be a better solution. This would allow me to include it in several projects as needed or even write some PowerShell around it for utilties.
Well, here we are again, I’d apologize but sometimes real life takes a priority and there’s nothing you can do about it. Since I last updated I’ve bought a new house, saw my daughter graduate high school, took a week vacation in a beach house, spent a month in Florida (working, mostly) and unpacked a hosue we hadn’t lived in for more than a few weeks. I’ve been working on a lot of different projects at work and personally and a lot of them I think deserve a full break down, but we can do perhaps a quick summary.
It’s been a minute and I apologize, last week was filled with meetings and interviews so been kind of busy with tedius work that I’m not a fan of. I did work on some Azure API Manamgment stuff so I think I’ll post about that later this week once I have things more sorted. So hopefully in the next few days I’ll kick something out that should be interesting.
