NOTES:

  1. Since I was selected for 2 presentations at some conferences, the number of presentations are greater than the total of conferences plus user groups events.
  2. Unfortunately, I had 2 UG speaking engagements for January 2017 that got moved to February 2017 due to weather and other reasons by the UG organizers.

Blogging Contribution Period: February 1st, 2016 – January 31st, 2017

My new blog: http://arlanblogs.alvarnet.com/

The topics are broken down into the following technical categories but will expand in the future:

  1. Azure
  2. PowerShell
  3. Software Development
  4. Open Source Software

There are currently 5 blog posts in place that I published in September and October. There are 9 more blog posts that are still in draft mode for November 2016-January 2017 that I need to finalize and make sure that the text/images used do not compromise any Alvarnet Corporation or client business/technology details. I will provide a status update next week as well when the blogs get published. It will also be released via Twitter as well.

I expect to have 14 public technical in-depth blog posts in place by the end of January 2017.

I am looking at getting crossed published on the following sites with current and new blog posts:

  1. canitpro.net
  2. MS TechNet
  3. MS Azure Development Community
  4. LinkedIn
