My 1st book is ready for order “Implementing #Azure Solutions”

Hi everyone,

as many of you already know. Last year around that time I started together with Oliver Michalski (MVP Azure) and Jan-Henrik Damaschke (MVP Cloud & Datacenter Management) to write a book about implementing Azure Solutions. After one year of hart work and many struggles and even more changes because of the rapid development of Azure, the book is now ready for order via Packt and Amazon 🙂

We are very happy with the result. Hopefully you have as much fun ready than we writing the book.
