and from here on, you shall be know as the Azure PDC
Final few hours in LA – I’m hitting Santa Monica for the last hours of sun in the City of Angels. If I’m ever back I’ll stay at The Standard again. The staff aint the best but the place has a great sense of humour. I found the motivational speaker button too hard to resist. Fluffer was not used.
My buddy Dave Lemphers posted about the Azure Services Training Kit this week. Great content, including hands-on labs, samples and sdks etc. If you’re jumped up about Azure after this week, go grab it.
[Blue Monster PDC edition]
The PDC is winding down and it’s been a hell of a week. A week of so many coincidences for me. For a birthday week it’s been incredibly memorable.
What a ride that has been. An interesting ride and at times a dangerous one for me personally. As James Senior said in a post earlier this week the PDC has been a Blue Monster week – for the second birthday we couldn’t have picked a better week. PDC has been full of world changing announcements. Maybe they’re just world changing from where I sit so please don’t think I’m suggesting we just cured cancer or something….but I continue to believe this company does world changing stuff. Stuff we should be proud of and that’s the kind of stuff we announced this week. For me, the coincidence of timing is amazing.
I was just lucky to be the right guy in the right place having an interesting conversation with one of the smartest guys I know. As I said, I took some heat over the last 2 years for Blue Monster, some of it deserved, some of it not. It was all worth it and I’m proud of the conversation is started and blessed to have met Hugh.
I guess all I really wanted to do here is get a set of weird coincidences out of my head – they’ve been bouncing around all week and I needed to air them. What I really wanted to say though is thanks to Hugh for a great birthday present. Your timing and couldn’t have better Hugh but the prescience was astonishing.
