I'm Robert Marshall, director and principle consultant at SMSMarshall Ltd, who's specialism is in the Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager product and all of its dependent products, covering all aspects from Architecture, Implementation, Migration to Break-Fix.
I've been in front of computers for over 30 years now, with my roots in programming 8 bit computers, I've taken an often exciting journey which has led to becoming an expert in an enterprise product. I consider my career as starting 17 years ago, when I began my first serious role as a deployment engineer. I've seen 8 bit through to 64 bit, the rise and refinement of the interface we take for granted now, the rise of the Internet from land-line based modem access for the few, to the powerful broadband connections we have today for the masses, I saw mobile phones come into existence, and I've seen Microsoft evolve from more than a handful of employees to the company it is now, while pretty much tinkering with every OS they have released, as well as seeing an industry that has evolved around those humble beginnings to become what we have today. I'm a keen technical puzzle solver, I love to solve gnarly problems around my area of specialism. And, I love to share when I have time. I hope you enjoy the blog.
Took me a while, but I managed to create three videos with runtimes of around 1hr 30min+ each from the days video taken at the WMUG November 1st 2010 meeting in London, England in which Wally Mead, Senior Program Manager, gave us a run through of ConfigMgr 2007 R3 and two great sessions on ConfigMgr 2012 split up as overview and migration pieces.
Here's the link to the videos: http://wmug.co.uk/groups/wmug_event_content/pages/wmug-event-1st-november-2010.aspx
I used about 8 or so hours of my life, Camtasia, AVItoALL, PowerPoint, sprinkling of RobSkills(TM) and then hosted on Vimeo to get these to you. Thus, after all that effort I expect you to donate to the RobSkills(TM) fund for impoverished children (a charity front i use to launder money). Not going to donate? Well, I still hope you get some value from watching the videos and I will generate more for the community as I get them recorded.
