This post came across my Timehop feed today and made me really reflect:
Hard to believe it’s been five years since I graduated from FSU. Those were some wild and crazy days, but they seem like they were just yesterday. Maybe I’m getting old… :)
If you’re looking for conferences to submit abstracts on anything web, cloud, mobile, or even soft skill related, this is an amazing Midwest-regional multi-day conference. It’s held at an excellent location (the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells), and the entire family is invited!
Hope to see you (speaking) there! For more information, visit the That Conference website.
Full disclaimer: I am part of the That Conference team, so I may be a little biased in my promoting.
If you’re running your WordPress site on Microsoft Azure, you may want to consider utilizing the CDN service that is available. By using the CDN service, you can host your static content such as images, scripts, and other theme components from the 31 different point of presence locations provided.
When you’re trying to scale and provide content around the globe, the CDN provides a cost effective way to send static content to more users.
While it’s rather easy to force drop a database from SQL Server Management Studio’s UI, it’s just as easy to script it out:
ALTER DATABASE [YOUR-DATABASE-NAME] SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE; GO USE MASTER GO DROP DATABASE [YOUR-DATABASE-NAME] GO CREATE DATABASE [YOUR-DATABASE-NAME] GO
Chicago, are you ready for some sass? I’ll be speaking at Chicago Code Camp on April 18, 2015!
I’ll be giving my relatively new presentation on SASS: Make a SASSy CSS Cocktail: Bourbon and Bitters Served Neat.

Microsoft Azure isn’t just an amazing platform for ASP.NET, it’s also an excellent platform for hosting the world’s most popular blogging engine: WordPress. With WordPress powering 19% of the web and Microsoft Azure adding more services at amazing price points, it’s a no-brainer to combine the two. Leave your traditional shared webhost behind and look to the cloud.
In this video, we’ll walk through creating a new, git-driven WordPress installation running as a Microsoft Azure Website. We’ll also tie into other cloud services, such as Azure Block Blob Storage for storing media, SendGrid for sending emails, and ClearDB for our database. You’ll be ready to launch to the cloud in no time!
Update: With this week’s Azure announcements, some things are slightly different from what’s presented in the video. Main examples: websites are now web apps, WordPress is now a template you have to search for, Web Hosting Plans are now called App Service Plans.
