Welcome to my blog
  I am a Developer Evangelist employed at Microsoft, living in the Silicon Valley area, focused on cloud computing, namely Windows Azure, the Microsoft cloud.

  Why you should read my blog posts
  My posts are focused on Windows Azure and provide hands-on guidance to not only write applications hosted in a Microsoft data center, but also provide guidance on writing applications that connect to the Microsoft cloud.

Mobile and Cloud
I am a big believer in interoperability and scale because of the huge growth in mobile computing. I have written many posts that illustrate how to create RESTful Web services that expose massively scalable data to Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices.

I provide videos, source code and detailed guidance for all these diverse platforms using Eclipse, Xcode. I provide code in Java and Objective-C that consumes cloud hosted services and data.
