Full Biography

It's been a long time since I've posted much on Experts Exchange. Having kids does that.

I'm a professional PowerShell developer based in and around London with over 8 years experience in that language alone. I'm also proficient in C#, VBScript, Perl and Python, but PowerShell is my favourite by a wide margin.

I describe myself as being a tool set / module developer (I rarely write scripts in the one-off sense); I have a deep interested in formalised development approaches, continuous integration, secure coding practices and creating supportable automation frameworks within organisations.

My current specialisation sits on top of 15 years experience spread across (predominantly Microsoft) systems, (Juniper and Cisco) networking and security.
