As a Microsoft MVP, my job is to help people with their technical problems. I also advise people who are looking to get started on the road to being an MVP. For some it could be by blogging or by answering forum questions, for others it could be by speaking at technical events.

Background

I have been asked a few times in the last while about how to get started speaking. Being a technical speaker is a great way to share your knowledge, build a name for yourself, travel, and attend conferences for free. You also meet many people who can help you as you move through your career.

CloudDevelop 2016: The return engagement

CloudDevelop logo

I will be speaking at CloudDevelop 2016 in Ohio this August. This is one of the few conferences in North America dedicated to cloud computing. CloudDevelop “aims to bring together people exploring every aspect of cloud computing.”

Last year was the first time I applied to the conference, and I was successful. The trip down to Columbus, OH from Canada was nice and the whole experience was awesome. I created this article about my experience.

My talk this year will be on Azure App Service to Create Web and Azure App Service to Create Web and Mobile Apps. Click this link to learn more about Microsoft Azure App Service.

If you are planning to attend what should be a great CloudDevelop conference, then please introduce yourself in the comments section below or at the conference. I look forward to speaking with you.
