About Me

Who am I?

My name is Adam Rush and I’m a passionate pseudo-geek based in Bristol, UK.

I’ve been into computing since I was a lad, and have learned something new almost every day; applying my life-long learning attitude.

I love most things IT but my main interests are in Automation (especially PowerShell), IT Infrastructure, and experimenting with new technologies.

My current focus areas are:

  • Azure
  • Ansible
  • Terraform
  • Docker

What is the “Hype-Pipe”?

The “Hype-Pipe” is a term myself and good friend / colleague Matt Horgan use to mock ourselves when we inevitably find ourselves “hyping” on some idea / technology / process / ANYTHING!

What will I find on this blog?

Mainly posts about stuff I’m working on day-to-day. I’m quite forgetful so they serve as a great source of reference, and I’ve learned from my old blog that they also help others overcome the same challenges. It’s good to give back as I’ve learned so much from other blogs over the years.

Anything else?

I’ve studied hard in the past with a focus on IT certifications as a means of structured learning, which worked really well for me and I enjoyed attaining them all, including:

  • Microsoft MCSE / MCITP:Enterprise Administrator / SQL / Exchange
  • VMware VCP-Cloud / VCP
  • Cisco CCNA
  • Citrix CCA / CCAA

For a full list of certificates, achievements, and work history please visit my LinkedIn profile: https://uk.linkedin.com/in/adamrushuk

I’ve spent the last year or so taking a more casual approach to learning, but I’m back on the wagon now, focussing on the many Azure Certification Exams.
