Hi I’m Pete Mellish I’ve been working at Microsoft for 7 months as a Consultant in the UK SharePoint Team in MCS(Microsoft Consultancy Services), however have been working with SharePoint since 2004 Wow didn’t realise I’d got that old, damn. I worked on some large scale SharePoint projects with RM before joining Microsoft, these include the SharePoint Architecture for Glow(Very large SharePoint 2003 deployment with potentially 2 million users) and for RM’s Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 based Learning Platform(Again vary high user volumes). My background for years has been infrastructure apart from 8 years ago where I was programming FPGA’s(Field Programmable Gate Arrays), I’m feeling really old now!  SharePoint 2007 has got me interested in doing more development work, this initially started moving into using Powershell to automate the deployment of SharePoint at RM and am now working with managed code since moving to Microsoft.

This is the first time I’ve contributed to a blog, be gentle :)

When I’m not running round for Microsoft you probably find me at a lake Wakeboarding or on a Mountain Snowboard. Well until my daughter is born and then I’ll be too tired I’ve been told, we’ll see :)   

Any question\queries please send them through.
