  1. Non-code Youtubers I enjoy

    • Youtube
    • Twitch
    • Entertainment

    Let's face it, this year has been unexpected! I never expected to barely leave the house. I live alone and am great with my own company, in fact it is very important to me. But I still used to visit the office most days, see friends at the weekends at least once a month etc. This is a whole new level of alone.

    But all this free time has meant I have more time to watch Youtube and this year I have made an effort to watch more than just tech or code videos.

    Welcome back everyone to Post 3 about my trip to Seattle and Microsoft Build. This post covers one of my favourite days at Build, Day 3 aka Sunday and the day I met James Montemagno! I have been talking to James quite a lot this past year but we have never had chance to meet.

  3. Review of 2019 (with a bit of a look ahead to 2020)

    • Annual Review
    • Life
    • Microsoft MVP
    • Public Speaking

    I don't often do reviews of the year. But with the decade ending and a lot changing in 2019, in terms of the content I create specifically, it seemed like a good idea!

  4. Transitioning from University to Career - My Advice from an Alumni Panel

    • University
    • Alumni
    • Graduating
    • Advice
    • Tech Advocate
    • Career

    My story into tech is no secret. I was severely depressed and lonely, went to college where I discovered programming and a classmate taught me C# which changed my life! That is what led me to studying Software Engineering at Manchester Met University and never looking back!

  5. Renewed as a Microsoft MVP for Developer Technologies 2019-20

    Last year, on the 1st June 2018 in fact, I was awarded Microsoft MVP status for the first time. A few days after that, with a few days to process the news under my belt, I wrote this blog post discussing how I went from not really doing a lot in the community to MVP within 18 months.

    Well I am proud to report I was renewed for 2019-20! In some ways, my array of contributions this year is a bit different to last, so I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you some of what I have been up to this last year and hopefully anyone wishing to become MVP too, can understand a bit of what it takes.
