So 2016 have started and fun stuff will happen in the near future!
Last week me and the family was in the ski mountains Idre and the rest of the family was skiing but I had a achilles tendon rupture in the christmas weekend so I had to be in the cabin most of the time! Although one evening I got to do some sightseeing on the mountain B-)
Pretty amazing stuff going with a large piste caterpillar and seeing the result!
But more importantly what is happening in the near future:
DevOps Hackathon in CopenHagen 20-21/1
I will be one of the proctors on Rasmus Hald´s DevOps Hackathon that will take place in Microsoft´s office in Copenhagen Denmark. During two days we will do workshops in DevOps stuff.
NIC in Oslo 4-5/2
Me and Fredrik will do two sessions on DevOps and automation with Chef/Azure/PowerShell/ARM during the Nordic Infrastructure Conference
Microsoft and the Azure Automation team has made it possible to use a custom account when running a job on a hybrid worker and that is awesome! Originally the jobs runs under the Microsoft Management Agent´s service account context and that is not always wanted.
The year of 2016 started in the best of ways when I got the mail every technical community fellow waits for with the subject:
Congratulations 2016 Microsoft MVP!

The year of 2015 could though have ended in a better way, I played some badminton after christmas and had the unfortunate luck to get a achilles tendon rupture so the first half of 2016 I will be recovering from this.. (typical injury for a male in his 40ies ? )
