Weekly Wrap Up – My mobile workspace

February 28th, 2020 — 1:08pm

Mobile workspace – After working for 15+ years as a freelancer, I’ve put together a little bit of a “mobile workspace” for when I travel to client sites. This all fits in my backpack:

  • Laptop (obviously)
  • AOC external USB monitor (powered from laptop)
  • power block (includes 3 outlets and 3 USB ports.
  • Small risers (legos) for raising up the second monitor
  • USB mouse
  • laptop power supply
  • AC Inverter (for power from car battery)

Nothing overly exciting, but this setup all fits in a backpack and has come in handy when setting up at various client sites, public coffee shops, etc. The second monitor is really the killer app of the setup, and makes me look like a real power user!

Weekly Wrap Up – OMi

February 21st, 2020 — 7:20am

Here’s a quick summary of what I worked on this week:

HPE Operations Manager (OMi) – I spent a good deal of time working with Operations Manager – 10.62 this week, helping configure a new instance for a client. This software provides monitoring and alerting for any networked device (servers, storage, routers, virtual, cloud, etc.). A big part of my role is configuring external functionality through scripting, api calls, and OM utilities to automate common functions.

Php ecommerce – Made some changes and updates for a client using Sunshop, a commercially available ecommerce application. I like this program because much of the code and templates are editable (once you buy the license), so it can be customized heavily to the client’s desires. It’s php/mysql based so it runs on most hosting platforms as well.

Custom php – I wrote and updated some custom php / mysql / postgres applications. One is an existing LMS (Learning Management System) which needed a few new features, and the other is a simple database application for managing internal workflows.
