You may not know that I have been travelling the country interviewing community leaders from the Microsoft data platform, on a new video blog: Data On The Road (dataontheroad.blog). Earlier this year, we travelled across the US in our motorhome, “The Data Bus” and stopped in several cities to chat with friends and colleagues who speak at conferences, write books, lead user groups and teach people about thriving in the data field. I had a chance to chat with folks like Bob Ward, Buck Woody, Adam Saxton, Kelly Kaye, Chris Finlan, Matthew Roche, Kellyn Pot’Vin Gorman, Leslie Andrews, Oz Du Soliel and many others. We also talk about how to work effectively from home and remotely, the importance of community and how these intense data experts unplug to balance work and life.

Satya said that Fabric is the most significant data platform innovation since SQL Server.
