Dave and Adam are back after most hectic time of the year for a Microsoft Evangelist – fiscal year end. In this episode, we go off the tracks right out of the gate with a discussion of Adam’s recent trip to Disney World. After we gain traction, we muse on the many announcements coming down the pike for Microsoft developers with the recent enhancements to Windows Azure and the announcements from the Windows Phone 8 Summit.

(Note: portions of this program were edited out to protect little ears and their belief of a certain mythical creature with floppy ears.)

After a long hiatus, the Thirsty Developer is back to kick off Season 2. In this episode, we introduce the listeners to a new member of the Thirsty Developer team, Adam Hoffman. Dave and Adam wax poetic about the old Commodore 64 days and learn about Adam’s role at Microsoft as well a hobby project of his – the Cloud Car (aka. Car-Puter).
