About

My name is Lorenzo Mitchell and I have been in the IT industry for nearly 15 years. It’s one of those things I knew I was meant to do from my first encounter with computers.

My first two years of working with computers was in a Unix/Linux only environment. I went on to use Unix (BSD) and Linux(Red Hat and Mandrake) for another 4 years after that, thus increasing my interest in scripting and programming. During this time I also worked as a Visual Basic programmer at a computer software company while doing software development at NIIT.

I later worked in the United Nations World Food Programme which was an exciting part of my journey, a mind opener to the power of knowledge and the numerous opportunities available to contribute to needs of mankind today.

Through the years, I have worked in many areas of consulting, ranging from Desktop and Web Application developments in Visual Basic .Net, scripting in Javascript,  PHP and  Cold Fusion etc to Project Planning and Development.

I am currently focused on identifying systems and processes that can be automated to increase productivity on an organizational level, using automation tools like Microsoft System Center Suite and PowerShell etc.

I currently work in the IT financial sector. Watching the results of how automation improves the lives of others around me has become an inspiration for me.

I have a BSc degree in Electronics and a Masters degree in Engineering Technology.

Here are some of my certifications and training over the years:

  • Microsoft Certified System Administrator (MCSA)
  • Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP)
  • Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)
  • Microsoft System Center Orchestrator
  • Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL)
  • EMC Certified VSAT Installer (Germany)
  • Project Management – Converting Strategy into Action (Stanford)
  • NIIT Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)
  • NIIT Certified Web Application Designer & Developer
  • Mobile Application Development in Android

Some of my future goals are MCSE: System Administration, MCITP: SharePoint.

I hope solutions I publish on this blog will be one source of help to those of us searching the web for answers to the unending questions of How-To in the IT industry.
