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).

  • DataTables, Nulls, Strings, Ints and Casting

    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.

  • WTF Write-Verbose

    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.

  • Introducing GithubClient

    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.

  • Has it really been 4 months?

    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.

  • Last Week

    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.
