Programme Chair: Jussi Roine | Microsoft | Finland

Born in ’77, I was drawn to computers at the ripe age of 5 when my parents brought home a VIC-20 home computer. I became a programmer at the same ripe age of 5 when I was capable of typing 10 PRINT “MY NAME IS JUSSI”. If we discard my questionable past working with Unix and Linux systems, I’ve worked for multiple Microsoft Partner companies since 1990. For the past decade or so, I worked at the company I co-founded, and in late 2019 I took a well-deserved break from IT. After two weeks, I’d completed Netflix, and joined Microsoft as an Azure Developer Audience Lead. I have stickers now.

I work with all things Azure, and the keywords that trigger me positively include serverless, .NET Core, architectures, scalability, cabernet sauvignon, and hybrid solutions. During my spare time, I also co-produce the ravishing Ctrl+Alt+Azure podcast, with new episodes each week.
