Tales from the Breakdown Lane: Real World stories of customer mistakes
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” ― Albert Einstein.
When it comes to cloud computing, I’m in full agreement with Albert Einstein. Deploying and operating workloads in the cloud, especially at scale, is functionally different than on premises and it’s important to review and apply some of the recommended practices and practices we provide such as those in the Azure Architecture center.
Check out the latest episode of CloudSimplified where Matthew and I chat with Evan Basalik, a principal service engineer and master mechanic of anything broken in Azure, while he takes a stroll through memory lane outlining some of the important things to pay attention to and verify before moving into production.
Hello! I am a technology professional with over 20 years of successfully selling, designing, and implementing IT solutions of all sizes. I have a sincere passion for technology both inside and outside of work involving myself with community events such as .NET user groups, FIRST robotics and in helping college bound high schoolers prepare for success through mock technology interviews. It’s easy to be successful in a role that you love and coming to work for me means I get to play with new and innovative technologies to bring bold new ideas to customers solving their business challenges.
In my current role, I take the complex world of the cloud and Microsoft Azure, a portfolio of capabilities consisting of over 100 products, and help customers in properly selecting capabilities, tooling, and technical frameworks to product results. My vast technical background spanning technologies such as embedded development, Windows debugging and C# to open-source technologies such as PHP, Python, MySQL and Linux aids allows me to quickly dive into a problem and identify solutions producing quick results using the power of the cloud!
