Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.
I'm a Senior Technical Evangelist for Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation. These days I spend my time helping open source software developers and customers recognize the value and benefits of working on the Cloud with Windows Azure, open source software and devices.
I have 20+ years IT and business experience, with a deep background in open source starting in the late 1980s. I'm also a frequent speaker and author for open source, big data and the cloud. My prior experience includes developing and delivering big data solutions on open source and proprietary platforms for IBM, Deloitte and others.
