💻 What's new this week (24th - 28th August)
Find out what's been happening this past week...
Hi all, I’ve decided to change how I write my newsletters. Instead of copying/pasting Friday’s blog post into my newsletter, I decided it would be best to write more on my blog and share all of the updates here. This means I can post as frequently as I would like to, and you can choose what you’d like to read.
If you like the sound of this, then I can’t wait for you to read below. Also, if you have any feedback and any suggestions, then you can send me an email or add comments on the newsletter in Substack using the button below.

What have I been up to?
This week has been pretty tough for me, first off work has been full of u-turns (much like our government rules). For the current project I’ve been working on, I’ve had to use Microsoft Graph, which is an API that allows you to connect to all their services Outlook, Office, SharePoint etc. It’s been one hell of a rollercoaster ride, but I think we’re getting close to having a resolution, and I might also write a useful blog post about it.
