  • Create your own MCM Program - Learning to Learn

    A lot of electronic ink has been spilled over our recent (and sudden) announcement that we are retiring the highest-level certifications here at Microsoft.

  • The Windows Azure Software Development Kit (SDK) and the Windows Azure Training Kit (WATK)

    Windows Azure is a platform that allows you to write software, run software, or use software that we've already written. We provide lots of resources to help you do that - many can be found right here in this blog series.

  • Windows Azure End to End Examples

    I’m fascinated by the way people learn. I’m told there are several methods people use to understand new information, from reading to watching, from experiencing to exploring. Personally, I use multiple methods of learning when I encounter a new topic, usually starting with reading a bit about the concepts. I quickly want to put those into ...

  • Azure Design Patterns

    I have a lot of learning resources you can find here at my blog, but I wanted to point one out this morning. It's a Silverlight application called ''Azure Design Patterns''. You can find it at http://azuredesignpatterns.com/, and it's an interesting way of looking at concepts and patterns for Azure interactively. I use this quite often even in ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #21 : Crap Code

    Yes, Adam is right: we've all written crap code (the topic of this month's T-SQL Tuesday Wednesday. Usually we have an excuse: tight deadline, short shelf life of the code, or didn't know any better. I'm sure if I perused my career codebase I'd find tons and tons of examples that I'd write differently today, because back then it fell under ...

  • Head in the Clouds–Eyes on the Books

Don’t worry; there’s some tech (and Distributed Computing tech, no less) in this post as well. I recently presented a few sessions on a “SQL Cruise” to Alaska (more on that here) and one ...
