Recently I have been getting my feet wet exploring cloud technology. Having played around with several VM technologies (HyperV, Xen, and VMware) on spare machines in my home test environment. I figured that it was time to focus my professional development time in the way that tracks the current IT environment. But I think the best way to play around with tech is to actually use whatever it is I am playing to accomplish a goal.
Mike F Robbins recently wrote a post on creating a personal blog. I figured that this was a perfect opportunity to jump into the cloud game by starting a blog hosted on one of the cloud providers. Having focused a large percentage of my recent time on learning PowerShell, Azure seemed to be a natural fit. So far it’s been an extremely smooth experience.
A future blog post will focus on getting WordPress setup.
