New Beginnings

September 17, 2012

I am a big believer in improving as a person both inside and outside of work. This is particularly important when working in the IT industry as things move so fast that if your not constantly learning you can quickly be left behind.

It is down to this desire to improve and develop as a person that I am leaving TSG. After 18 months with TSG, during which I have learned a lot, I believe I have reached a point where in order to make the next step in my career I need to move on.

My next role is with Company Net based in Edinburgh. Having spoken with them I believe they can offer me the chance to continue to grow and develop. I am very excited about this new challenge and hope to gain some valuable SharePoint 2013 experience.

Useful Resources

February 18, 2011

As part of my everyday routine I come in the office and the first thing I do, apart from getting a cup of tea to wake up, is check what other people are doing/blogging about in the SharePoint arena. Some of the links below are people I have worked with but most are well respected SharePoint people. Even though I am sure most people regularly check these blogs I thought I would be a good idea to share the links anyway as it might help some people but also to see if there are any other good resources out there that I could be using. If there is someone/resource that you think is worth adding to the list let me know.

New Start

February 18, 2011

This week I started a new job working for TSG as a SharePoint Developer based in Hamilton, which meant leaving Dog Digital after only 5 months. It was a tough decision as while I was only at Dog for a short period everyone made me feel welcome and I got to learn a lot, particularly around using MOSS 2007 for public facing web sites and the joys of content deployment jobs. I would like to thank everyone at Dog for everything and wish them well in the future.

I am very excited about my future with TSG and am looking forward to getting to used SharePoint 2010 in a commercial sense. Even though I have only been here a few days I can tell its going to be a good move and am excited about the future.

This is my first blog and my first ever post so bear with me until I get settled into it.

I have been considering starting a blog for a while but I have always decided against it as there are so many pointless blogs out there and I was never sure I would dedicate the time needed to keep it up to date and relevant. This was until I was doing some work on a website I created for my upcoming wedding and I came across an annoying issue. I spent some time looking around but I couldn’t find any clear posts/discussions on how to solve the issue. After some investigation I was able to implement a work around and it was at this point I though wouldn’t a blog be handy to share the knowledge but also as a reference I could use at a later date.

I hope people find this blog useful and welcome all comments but please be constructive 🙂
