About Shogan.tech


Hi, my name is Sean Duffy. I am a Virtualization, PowerCLI/PowerShell and general technology nut. I guess you could say I am a technology evangelist of sorts. I enjoy sharing knowledge and tutorials primarily relating to VMware, automation and other IT topics. Shogan.tech is a (mostly) technical personal blog, where I write about these topics that interest me or others that I work with or get a chance to play around with. Virtualization, Automation, Scripting (PowerShell and PowerCLI), Windows Server technologies, Linux, Hardware, Art, Design and iOS development content can be found in the posts here. I am passionate about Virtualization and Automation, so more of my posts may be geared towards this topic. I am VMware VCP 4 and VCP 5 (vSphere) certified, and also hold some other VMware certifications such as the VTSP. I hold the VMware vExpert title for 2012, and 2013. I also hold a Microsoft MCP and am currently working toward other certifications where I can fit the time in!



Why “Shogan” and not “Shogun”?


Well, “Shogan” is a nickname given to an old friend of mine and myself by his younger brother when we were kids. I am not sure why it was spelt this way, but it was. I guess it just stuck and I have used it as an online “handle” ever since! The nickname has caused much confusion in the past. In a recent Get-Scripting podcast I was even thought to be called “Sean Hogan” (i.e. S.Hogan) at first!
