Blog articles are great for sharing information, as well as getting some feedback through comments. However, it’s still somewhat limited when it comes to the opportunity for communication. What if you have a question unrelated to the post topic? How do you talk with other readers of the same blog? How do you solve the limited networking capabilities between subscribers? Well, I’ve been putting some thought into this and have put together a solutions!

Join the Conversation

When I kicked off the Milwaukee Azure group, the first thing I did was set up a Slack group so people with interests in Microsoft Azure and the cloud can get together virtually to discuss anything. There’s been some good success for a local meetup group, but I have gotten requests from people not local to Milwaukee, WI for this same type of group.

I put some thought into this and have decided to launch a Slack group for Build Azure. This is a GLOBAL group. Absolutely anyone from anywhere in the world can join. Anyone can come chat with others about Microsoft Azure and other cloud topics, ask questions, answer questions, or just pontificate on the future of cloud computing.


Come join the conversation. I can’t wait to see what awesome conversations we will have!
