Dell Technologies World - my story so far

2018 has absolutely flown by so far. I'm really not sure where it's gone, but it's May already. May for me means the beginning of the conference season, and I actually managed to sneak in one prior to May as I spent a week in Atlanta a couple of weeks back for VMware's Empower technical partner conference - I meant to blog about this while there but I was just too busy and didn't find time. I'm currently out in

A good start to the year (ok, it's nearly April...)

I don't know about you, but it's been a whirlwind start to the year for me. I can't believe I'm nearly at the end of the first quarter, and Spring is springing around me (that's the correct term, right?)

2018 - Setting some targets

I did this for the first time last year and found it really helped me to achieve some goals that I don't think I'd have hit otherwise, so I'm going to give it another shot this year. Not all of these goals are technical or career related. Here goes... Start running again, with a target of running 5km a minimum of 3 days a week by the end of March. I've gotten lazy since I moved in with Jenny, and
