Discuss Mesh, Live and the Cloud

Page history last edited by KarenG 12 years, 10 months ago


James is a Technical Evangelist for Live - he recently moved to Microsoft HQ's in Redmond. My apologies for missing him off this invitation - I have been amused to see the blog posts on both his site and Angus' one too asking for votes as to whether he should be allowed to join us - this thing is he suggested meeting up in the first place! James is a lovely chap and I think we should welcome him - if for nothing else but to see how many Americanisms he's picked up.


Where: The Coach and Horses pub, 29 Greek Street, Soho, London SW1V 5LL     

When: 11th December from 6pm to 8pm (and onwards for anyone that fancies it)

Who'd enjoy this? Anyone who's interested in discussing cloud computing with two of the leaders from Microsoft


What do I need to know? This will be an informal chat with 3 interesting passionate guys over a pint or two (or soft drink if you prefer). We're meeting in the function room that's located above the bar - to access the room you'll need to let the bar staff know your intention as you literally have to go behind the bar and up the stairs to reach the room - it's on the first floor. This is the old location of the Social Media Cafe so if you've been there then it will already be a familiar location.


What about food? The pub serve good hearty "pub food" and hence you are welcome to order food though Microsoft won't be picking up the bill!

How can I sign up? Please add your contact details to the list below


Jeff Hansen and Angus Logan are keen to meet interesting people on their way back to Redmond following Le Web - their details are shown below 


Jeff Hansen

General Manager – Services Strategy / Live Mesh, Microsoft Corporation

Jeff Hansen reports to Ray Ozzie and is responsible for helping drive Microsoft’s services strategy.  Central to this strategy is the “Software plus Services” approach that brings together the best of cloud-based services and the software that resides on a world of devices. An approach that utilizes the power of local client and/or on-premises server software combined with the reach and always up-to-date nature of services in the cloud.  As part of this effort, over the last three years Jeff has worked closely with Microsoft’s Live Services platform team on the mesh initiative - providing Product Management support for the Live Mesh offering and the recent introduction of the mesh technologies in the developer focused Live Framework – Community Technology Preview.  Live Mesh is a marquee example of the S+S approach – providing symmetry between the client and the cloud by using the web as a hub to bring together a wide range of user’s devices.  Enabling individuals to manage, access, and share their information and programs seamlessly on the web and across their world of devices.  Deliverying on the vision of computing experiences that seamless span the ‘data, devices, people, and applications’ people interact with everyday.
