Hi, my name is Richard Astbury, I work at Microsoft helping developers to succeed using the Azure cloud. I’m a Puralsight author and an ex Microsoft MVP.
I’m interested in programming in TypeScript, C#, Python and playing around with many more. In real life I like cycling, paddle boarding, snowboarding and drum and bass. I don’t like marmite.
I live in Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK.
