On Friday 30th September 2011 I spoke at BizSparkCamp for Azure, Microsoft, London about PhotoPivot.

The talk was part of the day devoted to real-world examples of companies using the cloud and, specifically, Azure to run their businesses.

My talk covered why our compute and storage needs married effectively with what Azure can provide.
