I am back with another edition of Uncut & Unedited. This is episode number 29. In this episode I have a very special person as my guest. I have been stalking him for a while to give me his 10 minutes for my show. I have none other than Mr. Glen Block who is currently the Program Manager on Windows Azure team.


In Feb 2013, Microsoft hosted the Global MVP Summit and I was fortunate enough to attend the summit this time. I am an MVP from last 2 years but this has been my first MVP summit. Its here in this summit that I was able to catch Glen in person and ask him for an interview. Before the summit we had a lot of twitter conversation and I wanted to meet him in person desperately and interview him. In spite of his busy schedule, Glen took me to Microsoft Office in downtown Bellevue and got us a empty room. I am grateful to Glen for this.

Here are  the questions I put forth to Glen:

  • His roles & responsibilities in Microsoft
  • His involvement with MEF & Prism
  • His involvement with WCF REST
  • His involvement with Azure & Node.js
  • His involvement with Azure Mobile Services – ZUMO
  • His visit to India in future

I had a great time interacting with Glen and interviewing him. He is one of the great interviewee that I have seen. It was an awesome feeling sitting there and listening to him when he talks about Prism, MEF, WCF REST, Azure, Node.js and ZUMO. Pheww that’s a lot of technologies that he has been playing with. I am really delighted to have him on my show and hope this is one of the good episodes for you guys. I wish we get to see him in India soon.

Here is the video of the interview:
