Built a Domain
Used Azure AD
I built a new domain for a school on new hardware. This new domain is linked to Azure AD for user syncronisation and auto sign in. OneDrive is synced and configured automatically for all staff.

This domain is the product of a lot of consultation with the school to ensure that the staff and pupils are getting the most they can out of the computers.

Staff where kept informed throught the whole process ensuring that access to systems and documents where not interrupted and everyone knew where to find resources after the work was completed.

Following the work Staff have given great feedback on how well the whole school IT is working now.

Automated deployment
Setup automatic releases of my utils library to build a publish to NPM from github actions.

This is why my utils library exists so I can test out things like this on something only I really use.

Wrote an article
I wrote an article on creating WDS discover images for use with devices that don't have on-board network ports.

This was especially useful as a lot of the hardware the Department for Education was shipping out to schools did not have network ports and needed to be setup quickly for use at home by pupils during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
