Hi, I'm Robbie Cannings.
As an IT enthusiast in Sydney Australia, I’ve spent a lot of my years working outside of the realms of vendor support, which has forced me to learn to fend for myself in challenging circumstances. On one hand it may take significantly longer to achieve a desired outcome, however I've learnt to look under the covers and understand more about how the platform works inside. When you can extrapolate what the system is doing from the kernel all the way through to the end user, it makes design, scaling, troubleshooting and other useful tasks far simpler.
Modern innovation and efficiencies are driven almost entirely by technology, it is exciting to be part of this and to understand how technology fuels improvements in every day life, business and making the world turn.
This site will help me to capture and pass on useful ways of making technology do what you need it to do, particularly at times where vendor documentation falls short (or access is restricted to paid subscribers). My interests are spread across many different areas which will hopefully find their way into the blog, including Enterprise IT, Cloud Computing, as well as Audio Visual and entertainment.
