WordPress App for Windows Phone

August 4, 2014

I saw a tweet from my good friend and TechEd Roundtable member Dieter Rauscher about a good app for Windows Phone.

I gave a quick search and found that the app I had in mind wasn’t there to be found. Anyway here is a link to the App so you can install it on your phone.Splash

Once installed you have options to start a new blog at WordPress.com, add your blog hosted on WordPress.com or add your self-hosted wordpress blog.

I have blogged about creating a Azure hosted WordPress blog in 7 clicks if you would like to try that out.

When you have created your blog or added your existing one you get to the Actions page, from there you are given options to:

  • Add a post
  • View Stats
  • Add a page
  • Blog Settings
  • View Admin
  • View Site

Swiping to the sides takes you to Comments, Posts and Pages.

To add a new blog post tap the tile and start blogging from Windows Phone to your WordPress Blogg.

My Road to Certification

May 16, 2013

I have worked with Microsoft products for a long time and am kind of a late starter when it comes to Microsoft certifications. I’ve had Citrix and VMware certifications in my back pocket for some time but in 2010 I had the opportunity to attend a Microsoft Hyper-V class and I was on my way to retrieve my first Microsoft certification.

Read the article about my road to certification on the Microsoft Learning website Born To Learn.

Why not start studying for that exam you been thinking about.


Exiting times…

# 1 New job at Lumagate.

Lumagate is a consultant company that focuses on Systems Management and the tools provided by Microsoft in the System Center Suite.

# 2 The challenge is back #90days2MCSA

Michael Bender is at it again, this time the challenge is retrieving the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) in 90 days. Microsoft Learning has already shared some created some awesome resources like the Microsoft Certification Study Groups.

There will be more, so make sure you check the Born 2 Learn web site and follow Michael Bender @MichaelBender, Microsoft Learning @MSLearning and the hash tag #90Days2MCSA on Twitter.

I will have a go at this, I just need to pass one exam the the upgrade exam 70-417, that exam has no forum or Wiki ATM but the test is built on the 410, 411 and 412 exams so there will be plenty of information.

Another great resource for the upgrade exam is the Windows Server 2012 Upgrade Jump Start with Microsoft Senior Technical Evangelist Rick Claus and Ed Liberman from TrainSignal

# 3 New Lab equipment

I ordered some hardware to build me a new lab. I will cover the build process in a blog post in a couple of days.

The lab contains of two identical boxes containing:
SHUTTLE XPC SH67H3 S-1155 300W
CORSAIR 32GB DDR3 XMS3 1333MHZ CL9 (4X8GB)
INTEL CORE I5 2320 3.0GHZ 6MB S-1155
OCZ AGILITY 3 2.5″ 120GB SSD SATA/600 MLC
WD GREEN 3.5″ 2TB SATA/600 64MB

# 4 Microsoft TechEd North America

The 90 days challenge ends just in time for the TechEd conference in New Orleans. To start studying on a topic before a major conference like TechEd is a really good idea that will help you get even more knowledge out of the conference.
It is hard to beat the opportunity to get answers from the Microsoft guys and girls behind the products directly from the hoses mouth.
