The best way to keep up with Azure
I am a CSA myself, I spend so much time reading Microsoft Docs and building POCs for my clients. This podcast gives me a bigger perspective about things I know and those I don’t know in the Azure Ecosystem. Thanks to you and your guests.
Doing our share of work for society
Very good podcast on technology, agriculture and society. Bringing azure and cloud in equation gives so much depth and scope to it. Also to bring this topic to Azure podcast brings two extreme ends of spectrum together.
Been a listener for a while now, but the content has gotten stale and the overall level of sophistication has lessened. It’s almost a ‘azure cloud concepts for beginners’ podcast now.
