He's always been working with .NET for as far as he can remember. He's built his profile on being a master of all trades. He's setup VMs, SharePoint environments, built servers and what not. He's coded from desktop apps to server apps, but he's truly found my passion around the web, however. Since then, he's been consulting independently for 3 years before seeing an opportunity to join Microsoft. He co-manages a local user group in Montreal, and owns his own blog. If you want to talk bread and bicycling, he's your man.</p> </div> <div class="podcast-chapters"> <h6>Chapters:</h6> <ul> <li><a href="#!"> - Dave introduces the show and Maxime Rouiller</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Maxime on working at Microsoft</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - The Cloud Developer Advocate role and Maxime's typical day</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - The evolution of Azure and open source at Microsoft</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - How Maxime got started in software</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Keyboarding competency</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Maxime's story of failure - deleting a production database, joining the wrong team</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Choosing the right team</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Priorities and using your time well</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Maxime's book recommendations</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Maxime's top 3 tips for delivering more value</a></li> <li><a href="#!"> - Keeping up with Maxime</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="podcast-resources"> <h6>Resources:</h6> <ul> <li><a href="http://aka.ms/maxcda" target="_blank">Maxime's Social Profile</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.meetup.com/msdevmtl/" target="_blank">MSDEVMTL User Group</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/scottgu" target="_blank">Scott Guthrie</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/cecilphillip" target="_blank">Cecil Phillip</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/about" target="_blank">Microsoft's MIssion</a></li> <li><a href="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/" target="_blank">Microsoft Learn</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/ignite" target="_blank">Microsoft Ignite</a></li> <li><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo_button" target="_blank">Turbo Button</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.joelonsoftware.com/2000/08/09/the-joel-test-12-steps-to-better-code/" target="_blank">The Joel Test</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.joelonsoftware.com/" target="_blank">Joel Spolsky</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.hanselman.com/" target="_blank">Scott Hanselman</a></li> <li><a href="https://mvp.microsoft.com/" target="_blank">Microsoft Most Valuable Professional</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/1680502387/?tag=devonfir-20" target="_blank">The Cucumber Book: Behaviour-Driven Development for Testers and Developers - Matt Wynne</a></li> <li><a href="http://developeronfire.com/podcast/episode-290-eric-evans-tackling-complexity" target="_blank">Eric Evans on Developer On Fire</a></li> <li><a href="http://developeronfire.com/podcast/episode-009-udi-dahan-understanding-and-communication" target="_blank">Udi Dahan on Developer On Fire</a></li> <li><a href="https://particular.net/adsd" target="_blank">Advanced Distributed Systems Design - Udi Dahan's Course</a></li> <li><a href="http://exploreddd.com/" target="_blank">Explore DDD</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="podcast-book-recommendation"> <h6>Maxime's book recommendation:</h6> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/0345457684/?tag=devonfir-20" target="_blank">Altered Carbon (Takeshi Kovacs) - Richard K.
