About me

My name is Miłosz Engel. I am passionate about integrating and connecting stuff. I like facing new challenges, testing new environments and connecting different systems. Windows and Linux Debian boxes (both physical and virtual) are my favourites. I like solving problems related to Windows Server roles and services as well as Linux but some systems in particular. I’m not considering myself as Linux master but surely, I always do my best to fit the needs. On the other hand I consider myself a Windows Server Professional and in terms of Windows Server services and Windows Desktops I always follow best practices, good advices and opinions from other admins. I also like database stuff like performance, queries and procedures.

Gaining masters degree in Teleinformatic Networks gave me strong fundamentals in both wired and wireless networking which I continue to use through my professional career.  I also finished Cisco CCNA certificate, which was a preliminary step to my master thesis which was related to OSI Layer 2 security including VLAN hopping and other vulnerabilities.

Currently, I’m focused on integrating stuff and more architectural roles and tasks. My background, going through many different jobs, projects and tasks related to different areas of IT – helps me to accurately estimate workload in order to fulfil requirements. I always try to foresee possible problems and technical issues related to systems and applications and their integration. My programming and database skills help me to track issues related to data and applications and provide good resolution to problems as well as performance issues.

Why this blog?

I started this blog for few reasons. Mainly just to have one place to memorize all those little and big things I encounter in my everyday work. There are (and will be) lot of small and fast fixes as well as complete tutorials for installing and configuring different type of things. Another reason is to have feedback. Yes, this is important to me since nothing is more valuable than constructive opinion(even negative) from users who are on the same boat:) Lastly, it is for you, dear reader. I don’t mind sharing my knowledge because I do remember how hard was to find some valuable information on the Internet.

I hope this blog will help you and maybe even encourage you to leave a comment for which I am grateful.
