I love computing technologies. I’ve been programming since 1975 and experimenting with various languages (Basic, Pascal, COBOL, FORTRAN, RPG, APL, C, C++, C#, a little Python) and platforms (mostly DOS, Windows, .NET Framework and Android). During these years, I’ve consulted, published books, published magazine articles, and produced classes to help others work with these some of the more popular of these technologies. To this day, I’ve kept up with many of these technologies and I will certainly continue to do so. For example, I expect that I will update my CLR via C# book to cover the next version of the CLR and C# (release date unknown).
However, my nature is such that I’m always looking for the next thing to embrace. After much deliberation, I decided to focus on Windows Azure. And, as such, I along with Paul Mehner (another Wintellectual who has been working with Azure even longer than I) have been working together with it almost daily since August 2010. In addition, I’ve had numerous meetings and e-mail exchanges with Microsoft Azure team members. And now, I’m finally ready to make some announcements:
And, before anyone asks: At this time, I do not plan on writing a book about Windows Azure development due to the time commitment involved in producing a brand new book. But, hopefully, I can get relevant information out to you sooner (and more cheaply) via all the avenues mentioned above. Also stay-tuned as I will be announcing the release of our new online (premium) content, you must sign up with Wintellect (please note that signing up is free). I will release more details in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
