Hi, My Name Is Barret

WITH NEARLY 20 YEARS OF PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE, I’VE OCCUPIED MANY ROLES INCLUDING DEVELOPER, TEAM LEAD, AND MANAGER. I USE THIS SITE TO SHARE SOME OF MY KNOWLEDGE AND WORK.

Barret

Hi there! I’m Barret. I wear many hats. Father, husband, manager, developer, gamer, blogger, speaker, model railroader, and so forth. I’ve been blessed greatly by this industry, and so this site is one way I try to give a little bit back. When I can find the time, I add a bit of my coding knowledge and experience to share with whoever might find it of worth.

I hope you find something of use here. I also have a creative side. If that interests you, check out the link to my creative side at the top of the page.

Blog

Herein you may find my blog posts. I post on all kinds of things. Hopefully some of it you will find of worth and useful. There are topics I speak more about than others, but I mostly speak about whatever is on my mind at the moment.

Contact Me

I am available to speak at user groups, podcasts, conferences, training sessions, etc on just about anything development-related, but my favorite topics include management, hiring, mentoring, C#, Azure, Power Automate, and related areas.

I also do small project side work for Power Automate, Azure Data Factory, Azure Functions, C#, ASP.NET. If any of that fits for your needs, feel free to contact me

Schedule Time

Are you new to the dev space or looking to switch careers and have questions or are looking for some career advice?

I’m happy to provide some feedback or advice. Maybe you might even find it useful.
