Scott Brady

I am a Senior Software Engineer at Rock Solid Knowledge. We offer software development consultancy, development and training services with myself specialising in all things IdentityServer. I'm also an author on Pluralsight.

I work predominantly in C# back-end and middleware systems with the beginnings of a specialisation in web security. I have had a focus on cloud computing since my MSc dissertation in 2013, gaining experience using various cloud based PaaS and IaaS offerings ever since.

This site is self created and is currently running ASP.NET Core hosted on Azure App Services. The layout originally used a purchased theme but I have since streamlined and converted the assets into Sass.

I use the maintenance of this site as a learning tool for myself as much as anyone else.

If you want to contact me, feel free to do so on Twitter or email me at [email protected].

I look a little different than my profile picture now, as I have a condition called Vitilgo which has caused some pigmentless patches of skin on my face. Luckily for me, I'm lily white anyway, but this condition affects a lot of people and can really affect people's confidence and life.
