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!
