I’ll be speaking at and/or attending a number of technical events this spring. I decided to make a short video to list all of them – if you are attending any of these events, stop over and say ‘hi’.
Here’s the deck from my talk at SVCC this weekend – enjoy!

Feel free to share tips and information that you have for understanding AWS pricing in the comments section of this blog post as well.
Microsoft recently previewed SQL Azure Premium instance (beta). This is set up on a per-server basis, that is a server can host SQL Azure WEB, BUSINESS or PREMIUM (P1 or P2) instances. A database type can be upgraded on the same server. Important note from Microsoft site :”We do not provide any SLA for SQL Database Premium during preview.”
I am interested in your feedback on this offering – please comment below.
AWS recently updated its console for Elastic Beanstalk (PaaS on AWS). For around $40 per month (if you are an existing AWS customer – I actually say this incorrectly in the video [should be $ 40 not $ 30]) or free (if you are a new AWS customer), you can try this service out. I really like the redesigned web console. Be sure to also download the AWS ToolKit for Visual Studio.
