Tales From The Field Weekly Wrap Up

,

Hello Dear Reader!

It's been a while.  I've been busy working with a few colleagues on our show Tales from the Field.  This has been a learning experience.

I've had to brush off some old skills on graphic design, bone up on some new skills namely how to run a YouTube channel & Video Editing!

This week we had two amazing shows.  First up was our Tuesday show where the Hosting Duties are on the line!

Let me quickly back up, the Tuesday show is a bit of a game.  We have a Host.  The Host pick's the topic.  The Host then awards points or deducts points based on how we do.

Sometimes we also have a guest.  Our guest this week was Bradley Schacht Principal Program Manager from the Azure Synapse Analytics Product Group.

"But Balls", you say.  "What's a Product Group?"

GREAT QUESTION Dear Reader!! At Microsoft teams that produce products are in our Engineering Organization, and they produce a product for example SQL Server, Azure Synapse, Azure Data Factory.  Each of those teams are called Product Groups.  So when I say, "Someone is a member of <insert product here> Product Group", that means they work on the team that builds or shapes the future of that product.

These are the people you want to know.  Bradley joined the Tuesday show and as the guest he also gets to award points.  Whoever has the most points, wins the hosting duties, and will be the host for the next show and they will pick the topic.

So on Tuesday Hosting Duties were on the line and I WON!!  Here's a link to the show below.

 

This is exciting because next week is Microsoft Ignite, don't forget to sign up it's free!!  So I get to host next week, pick the topic.  Plus we have TWO special guests.  Anna Hoffman, host of Data Exposed, & Niko Neugebauer from the Azure SQL Managed Instance Product Group!
On Thursday we had Hope Foley guest host for my buddy Josh Luedeman.  Josh was out with a bad case of Pizza is better than Ninja's..... best explained by this clip from the Tuesday show.

 

Back to Thursday.  We had Hope Foley & special guest Lonnye Bower for the Community Round Table!

 

Sooo much great community content from the round table.  Here's a list of that content!
