Speaker for tonight's presentation

David Makogon is a Windows Azure Architect Evangelist at Microsoft, and holds the dubious honor of being the world’s first former Windows Azure MVP. David has been developing Windows Azure applications since early 2009, before Windows Azure was commercially released. Prior to joining Microsoft, David was Principal Architect at RDA, and served as a virtual Technology Specialist for the Windows Azure sales team at Microsoft.


David lives in Maryland with his wife, 3 kids, and puppy Nimbus (appropriately named after a cloud). You can read his thoughts at http://www.DavidMakogon.com, and his shorter thoughts at https://twitter.com/dmakogon.
