Luper’s Learnings – Azure Technical Community for Partners (August 2017)

Welcome to the August 2017 monthly edition of Luper’s Learnings.


I’m baaaaackkkk… After a yearlong break, Luper’s Learnings is stretching its legs and getting back on the ground. As this is the first edition in 2017 and first time back in a while, I’ll keep it a bit short but… do be prepared for the next edition,  post Ignite on 29 September. I’ll be watching Ignite remotely this year so will miss those of you who will be attending in person but please do stay in touch via Twitter and email.


If you received this directly from me then you are on my list and you will continue receiving my Learnings once per month. If you would prefer to stop receiving it, please reply to me and I’ll remove you promptly. If somebody forwarded this email to you and you would like to begin receiving it from me directly each month, just email me at luperslearnings (at)

Here we go with things I’ve learned since the last Luper’s Learnings…

Hopefully many of you in the US experienced and survived the eclipse this week. Several of us from the partner technical team tried to get closer to totality without getting caught in traffic for days. We drove about an hour south of Seattle and experienced around 94% totality so… it never got dark. Good time, though!
