#MVPbuzzChat with Rainer Stropek
For Episode 99 of the #MVPbuzzChat series, I connected with Microsoft Regional Director and dual-MVP in Azure and Developer Technologies, Rainer Stropek (@rstropek), co-founder and CEO of the company Software Architects (makers of Time Cockpit), as well as an active coder, presenter, trainer, and author of numerous books and articles on C#, web and database development, and Microsoft Azure, and is based in Austria.
Rainer is also a very passionate about community and his participation in the .Net Foundation, and is a strong advocate for STEM learning through coderdojo.com/. In fact, Rainer is currently running for a board seat on the .Net Foundation, and you can find out more and vote for him at https://dotnetfoundation.org/about/election.
In this episode, Rainer and I discuss his coding background and the start of his company, and how he was able to turn his passion into a growing business, creating SaaS IP and helping organization make the transition into the cloud. He also shares some of his current technology interests, including Rust (www.rust-lang.org/), and his work to build up the community around this new programming language, including rust-linz.at/ and https://coderdojo-linz.github.io/.
