Azure Compute hosts Reddit Ask Me Anything session on Friday, May 20, 2016

Azure Compute hosts a Reddit Ask Me Anything session on May 20, 2016.

The Azure Compute team will host a special Ask Me Anything session on /r/Azure, Friday, May 20, 2016 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm PDT.

What's an AMA session?

We'll have folks from across the Azure Compute Engineering team available to answer any questions you have. You can ask us anything about our products, services or even our team!

Why are you doing an AMA?

We like reaching out and learning from our customers and the community. We want to know how you use Azure and compute services and how your experience has been. Your questions provide insights into how we can make the service better. If this AMA session turns out to be useful, we may start doing this on a regular schedule.

Who will be there?

You, of course! We'll also have Program Managers from the Azure Compute team participating throughout the day. Have any questions about the following topics? Bring them to the AMA.

  • Virtual Machines
  • Virtual Machine Scale Sets
  • Container Service
  • Batch
  • Service Fabric
  • Cloud Services
  • Extensions
  • Messaging Services (Service bus, event hubs, etc.)

Why should I ask questions here instead of StackOverflow, MSDN or Twitter? Can I really ask anything?

An AMA is a great place to ask us anything. StackOverflow and MSDN have restrictions on which questions can be asked while Twitter only allows 140 characters. With an AMA, you’ll get answers directly from the team and have a conversation with the people who build these products and services.

Here are some question ideas:

  • What are Virtual Machine scale sets? When should I use these vs. simple Virtual Machines?
  • What scenarios are good for the container service?
  • Where does service fabric fit into the picture?
  • How do I make use of the batch service?
  • How should I design a good messaging pipeline?

Go ahead, ask us anything about our public products or the team. Please note, we cannot comment on unreleased features and future plans.

Join us! We're looking forward to having a conversation with you!
