I truly believe that these are the subversive elements that are going to change how a lot of us get our jobs done with data. I’ve worked with Azure SQL Database within my organization and I do lots of experimentation and testing. Any chance I get, I like to present sessions on Azure. Funny thing though, my presentations are never as easy as work, and I think I ought to discuss why.
