The TechReady event is an internal Microsoft event, so I cannot cover any of the event content. However, I can try to capture the vibe and the activities by the ALM Rangers highlighting the bridging, collaboration and sheer passion that the Rangers community is pouring into this event.

My agenda for the next three days is Windows Azure development and  trying to clarify the era of the  “cloud”.  Go to http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/overview/ for a good starting point and a free trial of this exciting?!? technology.

Pictures taken today …

DSCN8090 The blue sky over Redmond is phenomenal and a pleasant change to the previous snowstorm and the frequent liquid sun. Hope we can fuel up with more sun tomorrow.
