Build Azure is Growing!

It’s been an amazing nearly 3 years for BuildAzure.com with just me, Chris Pietschmann, being the only one writing and posting articles to the site. A few days ago I made an announcement that “Build Azure is Growing Beyond just Chris!” That’s right, soon I will not be the only one writing and posting articles to BuildAzure.com.

While I assure you I will still be writing and posting articles just as much as I have been the last couple years, I am excited to welcome the first additional author being added to the list of people writing for BuildAzure.com. This will add to the breadth of content that I am able to post on the site by adding additional expertise to that of my own. And, instead of calling them “authors” (as that would be boring), I’ve decided to tag these new authors as “Build Azure Experts” instead. Doesn’t that sound cooler? 😉

The first new author joining the team is Dan Patrick. Dan is actually more on the Infrastructure side of things within the Microsoft Azure space than I am. This will really help broaden the expertise and insights posted to the BuildAzure.com site.

I reassure you that I am still going to be sending out / posting this Build Azure Weekly newsletter every week, and writing 2 or more articles for the site myself. I will also be adding Dan’s posts to the site as he writes them on a regular basis. I’m personally really excited to brow Build Azure bigger than myself, and I have a couple other new “Build Azure Experts” I’m in talks with about joining the team as well.

The growth of Build Azure has been amazing so far, over the last nearly 3 years. And this growth in the team will certainly ensure some further amazing growth to Build Azure over the next 1, 2 or 3 years to come!

Build Azure is Growing Beyond just Chris!

Build Azure is Growing Beyond just Chris! 8It’s not often that I write these “meta” style articles here, but I have some news that I’m really excited to share with everyone. For the last approximately 2.5 years, I’ve been the only person writing ALL the content and newsletter for BuildAzure.com. Yes, it’s really been just me. There’s been no AI involved. 🙂 I’ve been able to grow BuildAzure.com to the level of traffic, subscribers, and Google ranking from zero to what it is today; along with the help from all those of you who are reading this, subscribing, and sharing. I sincerely thank you all!!

It is now time to grow BuildAzure.com to be more than just myself, and start adding amazing Microsoft Azure experts to the list of authors and “Build Azure Experts” posting content here. This does not mean I’ll be posting less; just that I’ll be joined by others too! Read More

MVP Global Summit 2018 is this week!

Azure Weekly: Mar. 5, 2018 - MVP Summit this Week! 10Today kicks off the first day of the Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2018! The MVP Summit is an event where Microsoft invites all the currently active Microsoft MVP out to Redmond, WA to meet for the week. If you’re not familiar with the Microsoft MVP Program, please read my article “How to become a Microsoft MVP“. Also, if you are a Microsoft MVP, thanks for subscribing to Build Azure Weekly, and I’m going to attempt to meet as many of you as possible this week! It’s going to be awesome!

Azure Weekly: Mar. 5, 2018 - MVP Summit this Week! 11The MVP Global Summit is essentially a private conference for those who are currently awarded the Microsoft MVP award, as well as Microsoft Regional Directors (RDs) to attend. This year there are approximately 2,000 MVPs and RDs from over 80 countries worldwide coming to attend.

The way the MVP Summit is run is that the presenters are all Microsoft employees from the various product teams. Then, MVPs get to attend sessions within their Award Categories / Expertise. Through this they get to meet product team members at Microsoft, network with other Microsoft MVPs and RDs, as well as offer feedback to the product teams. The Feedback aspect is really one of the big reasons Microsoft holds the MVP Global Summit each year. This provides a means for Microsoft to get early feedback and suggestions from leaders in the community to help make all the products and releases even better.

It is also worth noting that in order to attend, all MVPs must sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) with Microsoft, as the sessions are full of early previews of what’s coming over the next few months. As a result of the NDA, anything new and yet to be released publicly that is presented and talked about at the MVP Global Summit can be talked about publicly until Microsoft themselves releases it publicly. While I’m certain to learn about a ton of awesome stuff in the pipeline, I unfortunately will not be able to share any kind of summary of the event content in next weeks Build Azure Weekly. Just be sure to keep an eye out over the next few months for awesome announcements and releases that MVPs likely got an early sneak peak at during Summit. 🙂

For those of you attending the Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2018, I just got in a bunch of Build Azure sticker that I’ve brought with me. 🙂 No hoops to jump through to get a sticker. You just need to meet me in person and say “Hi”. I’m excited to meet everyone at the summit!
