Guest Lecture: Zoran’s Harvard Class – Introduction to the #Azure Cloud Platform

On Friday 04-Dec-2015 I was a guest lecturer at Zoran Djordjevic’s cloud computing class at Harvard. As usual, I battled furiously with the Blackboard recording software as it repeatedly turned itself off as I switched between slides and a demo, and battled its confusing UI. But in the end, overcame the tech issues and was able to crank through lots of Azure topics with the class – from security/compliance to the many compute models to reliability patterns (and platform support) to data management to some service management and more.

Talk: New England Microsoft Developers – The #Azure Toolbox for Developers

On Thursday December 3, 2015 I spoke to an engaged crowed at Andy Novick’s New England Microsoft Developers’ Group. The topic was a high-level look at the Microsoft Azure cloud platform with the perspective of a toolbox for developers.
