About

This site is brought to you by me, Jim.

The cloud just makes sense. I have been building solutions for clients in the cloud on Microsoft Azure for four years and been building solutions in general for 18 years and more.

I have most recently been Director of Innovation for Capax Global, a Microsoft Gold Partner, but my passion is still getting my hands dirty across ALL phases of the application life-cycle.

Supporting my clients in the cloud has meant truly rapid learning of new tech and always living outside of my comfort zone. So, while my most current skills are below, that’s hardly my limit.

Favorite things to do:

Cloud Architecture, Application Architecture, Integration Architecture
“.Net Stack”: C#, ASP.NET (MVC, WebAPI2, OWIN), dotNet, T-SQL, SQL Server
Web Technologies: AngularJS & Angular 2, JavaScript, HTML (HTML5), CSS (CSS 3)
Microsoft Azure including: Azure Active Directory, Azure App Services/Web Sites, Azure SQL Database, Azure Service Bus, Azure API Management, Azure Storage, Azure Virtual Machines, Platform-as-a-Service (PAAS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service(IAAS)
TDD, Unit and Integration Testing
Azure DevOps, Azure Resource Manager, Powershell
Git, Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS, formerly Visual Studio Online), TFS
Agile Software Development, Continuous Integration
Mentoring in all of the above and more
