    In case you missed the meetup, I was able to record the first talk. You can view it on YouTube here:

    Bing Maps Private Cloud: Parallel Processing on the Prairie

    I had some technical difficulties with the second talk so it is unavailable.

    Very interesting talk. The discussion of the mapping work was fascinating. Azure sounds like a platform I need to revisit.
