I'll come in bringing over 20 years of experience.
You can benefit from the creativity, design, and knowledge I have from working with the biggest organizations around.
I've been working in the tech industry since 1988, and have had the good fortune to spend time in multiple disciplines, including application development, networking, domain design, messaging design, and more. I've had 19 different Microsoft certifications over the years and have spent the last decade plus working on SharePoint and later Office 365. In the over 15 years I spent with Microsoft Consulting Services I've worked directly or indirectly with almost every member of the Fortune 100, large government organizations, as well as every branch of the United States military.
I've focused extensively on authentication and authorization, and understanding how it can plug into the collaboration applications we use every day. Early on in the SharePoint product cycle that meant extensive work with forms based authentication (FBA), and then later SAML authentication, for which I've probably talked to more customers, partners and consultants than anyone out there. The model continues to evolve though, with a new authentication model based on OAuth for applications in SharePoint 2013, and now Azure Active Directory and it's support for SAML, OpenID Connect, and OAuth. It's an industry that remains highly dynamic as it responds to changes in user habits as well as challenges produced by an increasingly dangerous world.
Well, okay, maybe the blog doesn't rule them all, but it's probably the way by which most people that I haven't met personally know me. The Share-n-Dipity blog has provided a means for me to share information about SharePoint, application development, Windows phone development, Azure...and the list goes on and on. I've been incredibly satisified with the traction I've been able to get through the blog over the years and the many, many comments and questions that have come my way as a result. I hope to continue to share what I can via the blog and whatever other media outlets make sense moving forward. As we started saying many years ago in the SharePoint Ignite trainings - "sharing is caring", a motto that is still used today.
