With higher attendance than any previous Microsoft partner conference, Microsoft Inspire 2018 in Las Vegas brought together partners and employees from over 132 countries for a week of networking, learning, and fun. Don’t miss the highlights from the first full day
I’ve been building Standard Operating Environments (SOE) in one form or another for years starting with Windows NT 4 Workstation (around the year that Charles and Diana Spencer divorced), right up to Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 (the year that Jonathan Francetic and Molly Duff from MAFS divorced [I swear had to Google that, I’ve never actually seen an episode!]).
What are you passionate about in life? Family, especially my wife and son. Spending time with them makes my day and I work hard to give them everything they want and need.

One of the reasons I joined FSLogix was because of their roadmap, so I’m very excited to be here while we launch what I think is one of the most useful products I’ve ever seen: Cloud Cache. For FSLogix, Cloud Cache is the result of thousands of development hours building, from the ground up, a technology that satisfies our customers’ requests while at the same time adding unprecedented new features and immediate value for any company that’s using Windows desktops today.
I am deeply honored and incredibly energized to be part of this Ziften team as its new CEO. And while my colleagues at Ziften know I generally prefer a command prompt to a blank page in MS Word, I’m relishing the opportunity to share my thoughts, so here goes.
Ah, Las Vegas.
Bright lights, big city and close to 40,000 tech professionals baking in the desert sun.
I’d been to Vegas dozens of times for various conferences however this was my first time with Microsoft.

Hello all, Robbie back again.
When running a number of sales reports the other day, I was pleased to see we’re now consistently tracking at well over a 100 new opportunities every month. That’s an average of 5-6 new services project leads every day from our partners, each of which needs to be addressed and then actioned by the relevant practice.
Recently, I have spent significant time trying to use ansible to deploy an azure configuration. There are plenty of websites which describe the individual steps but either I could not find the ONE that encompasses them all or there simply isn’t one. I found this utterly frustrating.
So, what did I learn? – To temper my frustration and to provide some sanity to all who got frustrated before me – I decided to create this friendly blog.
Some time ago Red Hat acquired Ansible Inc – the company responsible for Ansible Tower. Being Red Hat – they promised to open the code of the Ansible Tower. The AWX project is the fulfilment of that promise.
I created this blog for those who would like to use the marvels of the Ansible Tower without paying a penny and at the same time would like to have a modern and secure way to access the awx portal.
