Expect Brian Prince to get (in his own words) "super excited" whenever he talks about technology, especially cloud computing, patterns, and practices. That's a good thing, given that his job is to help customers strategically leverage Microsoft technologies and take their architecture to new heights. Brian's the co-founder of the non-profit organization CodeMash (www.codemash.org), runs the global Windows Azure Boot Camp program, and speaks at various regional and international events. Armed with a Bachelor of Arts degree in computer science and physics from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, Brian is a zealous gamer with a special weakness for Fallout 3. Brian is the co-author of "Azure in Action", published by Manning Press.
