An Introduction–Automation Blogger for Building Clouds

Hey Readers!  Some of you may know me from my blog on TechNet where I’ve covered topics on automation around System Center 2012 – Orchestrator and Opalis.  Well, I’m joining the fun in the Building Clouds blog space to provide my experience in all things automation within the Automation Track kicked off by my good friend Charles Joy.  Topics I’m looking to cover in the short term initially will concentrate on:

  • PowerShell v3 and some workflow coolness Hot smile
  • Leveraging SCVMM Service Templates to deploy private cloud workloads
  • Some best practices on Orchestrator Runbook creation
  • And so much more!

But before I go, who am I?

My name is Jim Britt and I’m a Program Manager in the Technical Enablement and Delivery (TED) Team here at Microsoft with a core concentration around automation.  As you can expect, automation plugs into many other technologies so I can say I’m a “jack of all trades” and “master of none” except of course in Orchestrator Open-mouthed smile.  I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the tips and tricks we use inside this team to enable solutions for our customers and partners.

Till next time, Happy Automating!
