  • Blog Post: NerdDinner On Azure – Take 2

    At last week’s Greater Buffalo IT/Dev Day , I did an overview of the Windows Azure Platform (the recently rebranded Azure Services Platform).  Rather than do a tired “Hello World” example, I thought it would be more interesting to talk about a more substantial application, so NerdDinner came to...

    When I was growing up in the South, “RC” meant one thing – Royal Crown Cola .  It’s still around, but certainly RC has a much different connotation in the  technology circles that I’m now part of. It’s that latter interpretation -- “Release Candidate” -- that has prompted this latest post....
