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.
Awesome Azure Podcast
Among my favorite podcast!
My only gripe is, way too much use of acronyms without first stating what they mean! - a turn-off for folk not familiar with Azure terminology.
Otherwise very interesting well covered topics.
