Missing my slippers…but loving the heels

Please forgive my lack of updates lately, it’s been a crazy few weeks. As most of you know, I am working with Microsoft Canada and it’s been a great ride. I have the opportunity to learn about new server technologies at a relaxed pace, instead of the “a client needs this done right now” scenario.

I love meeting new people and basically being able to “geek out” all day. Okay, I don’t get to geek out too much at the office, but I do when I’m working with partners and distributors. I’m still trying to find my way, both in the position and around the building. I have only gotten lost once, but I do tend to end up in a cubby I didn’t expect to be in. I only realized my manager in on a different floor than me last week when I went looking for someone else.

I do miss my jammies and my mid-afternoon nap, but it’s so worth it.

Thanks for forgiving my delay, and now that I have gotten back into the swing of full-time employment, I will get back into posting on a more regular basis.

From Jammies to Suits

I apologize for my lack of material lately. I’ve been very busy, but I admit that that should not be an excuse. There is a good reason for my busy-ness, there has been a change in my career focus. As of last week, I started working for Microsoft Canada in the role of SMB Server Champ. This was not an easy decision to make; I love the clients I serve and I am honoured that they have allowed me to be a part of their businesses.

I am excited about the change and I’m looking forward to helping promote Windows Server 2012 to SMBs. I love this product, and the updates and additional features in R2 are impressive.

This transition does not mean the focus of this blog will change. If anything, I’ll be able to bring new technologies aimed at SMBs to the readership faster.

A huge thanks to my clients for allowing me to be a part of their businesses and using their stories for this blog. Thanks to Microsoft Canada for inviting me to join their team. A special thank you to a special friend who helped this process along. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my family and friends.

Stay tuned for a flurry of posts about Windows 2012 Server and my transition from jammies to suits.
