It was Thursday (29th April) when we heard Paolo Salvatori (Principal Program Manager, Microsoft Azure Customer Advisory Team) is coming to Bangalore, India. Paolo has developed Service Bus Explorer which is very well respected in Integration Community.
Very quickly ServiceBus360 team, decided on Friday to have a catch up with Paolo and requested him for a schedule. Paolo was kind enough to spare us 90 minutes from his busy schedule, which really made our faces Happy! We got an appointment for Monday Evening.
On Sunday evening – the team started from Coimbatore. I started early morning from Delhi on Monday. We all arrived at Bangalore at the same time around 08:30 am in the morning. We headed to the Hotel, freshen up and had breakfast. At 11:00 AM we were ready to start. We had a brainstorming session before we headed for lunch around 02:30 PM.
Paolo was at Microsoft GTSC(Global Technical Support Center) – Bangalore. We needed some room for discussion and hence we reached Deepak Rajendran – (Community Program Manager – India) and request him to help us. We are very thankful to him for all his support during the meeting. He supported in all the way he could. Thank you Deepak, we really appreciate the help from the bottom of our heart 🙂
We were surprised to see Paolo jumping in much earlier that we expected. He joined us at 04:15 pm and we started discussing things.
The time really flied as it extended till 06:30 PM when we concluded.
Thank you Paolo for your valuable suggestions and various insights in the Service Bus Platform. It was really nice to meet you and to have a healthy discussion.
Heading forward we met Hari Kharan too. Hari is a Senior Escalation Engineer at Microsoft GTSC, Bangalore. He is providing us phenomenal support in getting his team to be a part of all our TechMeet360 initiatives in Microsoft Integration space.
We had a very nice catch up with him on dinner. Thank you very much Hari for spending time with us.
We are aggressively working on making ServiceBus360 very soon as our another flagship product.
