About Christian Longstaff's Blog:

Hi, I’m Christian. I work for Microsoft Australia as the Windows Azure Partner Strategy and Marketing Manager helping partners grow their businesses with the Azure platform. I have been with the company for over 10 years in various Partner facing and technical marketing roles.

This blog covers a variety of topics but I am especially interested in Partners adopting and developing on Microsoft technology, but also any software, services and communities. I would love to hear from you if you have a great powered-by-Azure example, especially around Mobile, Social Media Apps or Websites.

To contact me, please email christian dot longstaff at microsoft dot com
