    An excellent overview by Chris on managing these features in Azure. And always appreciate a great code demo.

    The presentation was good. The screen is too small for the amount of text presented. Fine for powerpoint slides...but showing code, it's quite difficult to see.

    This was a great dive into a technology which I haven't had the chance to explore on my own. Amazing to have Chris up here from MS!
