Brewery.fm – E13 – Bananas and Battleships

This week Scott Hoag and I covered a ton of the announcements from the first day of the Microsoft Build conference as well as getting up to speed with other recent announcements when it comes to Azure, Office 365 and even the Apple Watch.

Several different topics have come up in the community recently comparing technology providers and their capabilities and the best we can say is that in a lot of cases it’s like comparing bananas with battleships.

Brewery FM – Episode 7 – Delving About Delve… Again

MemeGenerator BreweryFMThis week has been a little hectic between work, life and community, but somehow Scott Hoag and I were still able to get together for an hour and record another session of Brewery.fm.

In this weeks episode, we call out Tim Ferro again – mostly because he asked us for some thoughts on an announcement from the Office 365 team on Azure ExpressRoute. Further, we discussed the intricacies of Azure’s RBAC features that were released a few months back (and how PowerShell is still the better way to implement RBAC if you need it with Azure) as well as a whole lot of other interesting topics.

Brewery FM

So for the past year, some of you might have wondered, “What happened to Dan always presenting with Scott Hoag and all of a sudden they’re not. Did they have a falling out?”

Not quite… more Scott took a position that moved him to Australia. So back to presenting on my own. I had the treat and privilege of getting to present 5 sessions with him at SPS Events Virginia Beach back in January 2015. While Scott was back we tossed around a couple of ideas – primarily around setting up a podcast or blog or something.

9742milesSo, fast forward 15 days and here we have the launch of Brewery.FM. It’s our podcast, recorded weekly, 9742 miles and change (or ~15678.2 Kilometers for our friends that use Metric measurements) to chat about a few different things.

The core focus of the podcast is the following:

  • For us to catch up – the time difference is killer and makes it tough to have regular conversations…
  • For us to compare notes on what’s going on in the world of Azure, AWS and other cloud technologies…
  • For us to talk about our favorite hoppy potent potables…
  • For us to share about what else is going on in our lives that doesn’t fall into one of those buckets…

Nevertheless, we hope that you’ll join in and catch us on the cast. To check out episode 1, browse on over here – http://brewery.fm/post/110519480495/e001.
