The First One - The Beginning
this post is the first blog post. I am excited to be starting on this blogging journey discussing my favourite topics; IT Security and Automation.
In my career I have had a number of opportunities to expand my knowledge in this area through IT Auditing and script development. Currently I teach at a polytechnic school in Canada and I am daily pushed to expand the bounds of my knowledge and stretch myself further. I love the challenge of teaching IT Security. I am in the perfect field, because learning is what I crave.
The goal for this blog is to be a centralized location for collaboration and the sharing of knowledge. I know there are many excellent places across the internet to do this very same thing. However there is something about starting something on your own.
I absolutely love scripting, it is so satisfying seeing your work assist others. I love taking repetitive tasks and turning them into jobs that can run on their own. Automation is awesome because a successfully created script can do the same task over and over and do it with 100% accuracy every single time.
I plan on sharing scripts that I am developing, hopefully they can be of some assistance to someone out there. The complexity level will range and the jobs tackled will vary. I am sure that there are some senior level programmers out there that will see my code and cringe. Feel free to inform me. I hope that everyone who reads this is similar to me in that we want to learn and expand our knowledge.
I am also open to suggestions for additions to projects. If a script is missing a key feature, let me know and I can include it :)
