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.
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.
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 am available for small projects for Power Automate, Azure Data Factory, Azure Functions, C#, and ASP.NET. If any of that fits your needs click below to contact me.
Are you new to the dev space or looking to switch careers and have questions or are looking for guidance?
I’m happy to provide guidance, mock interviews, or resume reviews for those just starting out.
