IT magic and personal topics  — 2017-02-02 

Conferences can be entertaining, informative and sometimes mega fun. 

I have attended quite a few in the past, but most of the time I lacked one important thing to really enjoy them: having a deep understanding of the topic (Ok, most of the time this was not the issue) and being a part of the community and know people. 

This year I have the great opportunity to attend the Config Management Camp in Gent, and meet with a lot of known and new people interested in the topic. 

The mostly excited thing is always to hear the stories and about the problems that you don’t find in Google, either because one lacks the time to write about them, or one has a strict corporate policy about social media usage and publishing internal topics. 

There are of course evening events where stories are being told, that happened with a friend of a friend, but the essence stays the same. 

See you there.

So here we are


We are producing a lot of content day by day, so here we are, here I collect and dump my thoughts and experiences, share my ideas. You and give some feedback or try to influence it by commenting on things if you care enough

but why?

My colleagues think sometimes I am a magician, but I am truly not one. I know the tools I have, how to use them, and how they work together. Here I share some insights, but you should have some knowledge of IT (and cyber if you prefer the current hype-word).


My work related topics will not discussed here in great details. They are too specific and also regulated by a lot of policies, so just not writing is easier for me than paying attention to all the details. sorry folks.


If I don’t know about something, I read about it, get excited, buy things, test them, make them work, and sometimes break it in ways the manufacturer never thought that was possible. You might find detailed reports of my home-projects with some technical insights.
