SCCMF12TWICE - New Blogging Platform

It's been a little less than a year ago that I started this blog. It was shortly after attending my very first MMSMOA, that I was so inspired by the generous ConfigMgr community in how eager everyone seems to be in sharing knowledge, experiences, tools, guides, best practices, and more, that I wanted to try and be like one of those very people that have helped shape my career.

I'll admit, though, it's sort of tough to find your footing, and your voice, just starting out, and as a (relative) noobie in the IT field, it can be intimidating sharing the same space as so many incredible talents.

However, through Twitter and talking with Chris Buck, he invited me to start blogging on SCCMF12TWICE, sort of a community blog, which offers a far better platform to get what I have to share to more eyeballs, so I'm going to take this opportunity to improve my blogging skills as well as have a bit further reach than I am currently capable of.

Over the next few days, I'll be posting some of the topics posted here over on the SCCMF12TWICE blog.

A big shout-out and thanks to Chris Buck (@SCCMF12TWICE), I look forward to working with you!

You can find more information about SCCMF12TWICE here.

A Community Driven One-Stop-Shop for ConfigMgr Resources

/u/ExeqZ on Reddit posted a Google Document intended to serve as a community-driven, one-stop-shop for ConfigMgr resources. The SCCM Community is one of the most charitable in sharing knowledge, but there's just so much of it, having a one-stop-shop for all of these resources is a great idea, so I wanted to do my part in sharing the Doc wherever I can. I expect that this document will evolve over time, certainly it's in its early stages currently, but I look forward to its future!

Summary of Servers Built in the last month.

Here's a SQL query that I wrote which will provide a summary of servers that have been built in the last month. Our team uses this in a dashboard in our Cireson portal that provides an easy way to tell when we might need to raise some red flags.

It's one of the first SQL queries I've ever written, so if you have any feedback for me, please let me know below, or on twitter!
