What is your Function?

Welcome to myvirtualfucntion and thanks for dropping by!  Here I put my thoughts, notes and tools as I work my way through my virtual world. You’ll find my PowerShell scripts for Azure, musings on life as an SE (Sales Engineer), CSA (Cloud Solutions Architect), people manager and other items that come to mind.
