I think it’s about time I dust off this blog and realign it with my current focus: HDInsight. I’ve been heads-down since February (when I joined the HDInsight team) learning about “big data” and Hadoop. I haven’t had much time for writing, but I’m hoping to change that. I’ve learned quite a bit in the last few months, and I find that writing is the best way to solidify my learning (not to mention share what I’ve learned). If you have topics you’d like to see covered, let me know in the comments or on Twitter (@brian_swan) – I do what I can to cover them.

If you have PHP-related questions (the topic of the vast majority of the blog to date), feel free to ask them. I’ll do the best I can to answer them, but as I mentioned earlier, my recent focus has been HDInsight for the past several months.

Thanks.
