Welcome to this crossover between blog and braindump. Blogs of others have been super important during my work. This site is me returning the favor. The blogs will be about Microsoft 365, Azure, SharePoint, SharePoint Framework (SPFx) solutions, docker, PowerShell, Power Platform, Entra ID. In short: anything I’m working on and interested in. I hope you’ll learn something here. If not, no hard feelings. If you read anything you do not understand because I failed to clarify it enough, please drop me a post using my socials or the contact form.

Warm regards,

Martin
