About Richard Astbury

Hi, my name is Richard Astbury, senior consultant at Two10degrees – a consultancy specialising in cloud computing. I’m a Puralsight author and a Microsoft MVP for Azure.

I’m interested in programming in JavaScript (node.js), C#, Python and playing with F#, Julia, Elixir, Clojure, etc… In real life I like running, mountain biking, snowboarding and drum and bass. I don’t like marmite.

I live in rural Suffolk, in the UK.

The opinions expressed on this site are my own and do not necessarily represent those of Two10degrees.
