New Role at Microsoft - Cloud Developer Advocate

Taking on a new role as a Sr. Cloud Developer Advocate withing the Cloud and Enterprise group. What does that mean? Talking to the community about the technologies that I love; ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core, Docker, services and how these can best be run on Azure and what we as a community can do to make it better. docs.microsoft.com, where I have spent my time since joining Microsoft, is a very important part of what we are moving to accomplish.

Thank you dotnetconf 2016

Had a great time presenting at dotnetconf, even with the A/C broken a the house. Appreciate the comments and feedback.

ASP.NET Core Needs a Logo

It is not uncommon for developers to adorn their laptops, Macs, Surface Pros, etc with the sticky vinyls of the platforms, tools and frameworks of the stuff we like to use. Unless you have been under a rock, or just too busy to look up, ASP.NET is all new again. It's small, fast, runs cross platform and aims to be on the radar of every new kid coming out of whatever school you name to be the framework of choice. But where's my sticker dude? dotnet is covered pretty well on stickermule.com as Kristan Hellang pointed out on the github issue - https://github.com/aspnet/Home/issues/579.
