Here are some resources and blog posts from my fellow Technical Evangelists here in East Region:
- Pete Brown and I have a new video podcast, called The Uninitialized Show. We recorded Episode 1, talking about Kickstarter, last week. This week, we’ll be discussing Displays and Input, and you can catch the show live here.
- Brett Wolfe, the manager for my team, shares upcoming events for my team in the southern part of our east region.
- For Tampa-area folks, Joe Healy has word of an upcoming Windows Phone developer event run by two top devs, Kevin Wolf and Bill Reiss.
- Diego Rivera has a bunch of updates this week, including his new Super G: Chain Reaction game and a Unity development event for Atlanta-area devs tomorrow (act fast as there are only 25 slots available).
- Frank La Vigne, from our public sector DPE team, has something of interest for DC-area startups, namely an interview with Evan Burfield, co-founder of DC incubator 1776.
- Jesse Freeman shares his reflections on one year at Microsoft (worth the read, trust me), as well as a sneak peek at his latest weekend project.
- Jim O’Neil wants to introduce Boston-area developers to game development. Join him this Saturday and learn something new!
- Maria Naggaga has had a bad time of it lately, when she found out the hard way what happens if you accidentally delete the MySQL database behind your WordPress site. Learn from her mistake as she explains how to re-provision a database for an Azure-hosted WordPress instance, and how to connect your newly-provisioned DB to your WordPress site.
- Dan Stolts has been busy, posting a registry workaround for adding tag support in Windows Live Writer for blogs where tags aren’t automatically enabled, a step-by-step on deleting Windows Azure storage, containers, and disks, and an overview of the BizSpark program, which is a great way for startups to get access to both free software, and Windows Azure service credits.
- Tommy Patterson returns with another in his series comparing Hyper-V and VMWare, this post on supportability and more.
- To wrap things up for this week, Yung Chou has a two-part series on Windows Azure IaaS deployment using PowerShell.
