The guys chat with Mike McKeown who has spent nearly two decades as Microsoft FTE and now is with key MS partner Aditi Technologies as Principal Cloud Solutions Architect. His passion is to help stakeholders or customers define their business/system requirements, and then apply Windows Azure Cloud architecture patterns and best practices to meet those goals. He loves to blog (http://www.michaelmckeown.com) about the Azure Cloud. In his spare (what spare?) time he also authored Azure online training courseware as a course author for Pluralsight.
Mike would like to plug the MVP community event, the Charlotte Azure Partner Boot Camp, Sept 6, at the Microsoft offices in Charlotte, NC that he is hosting. Evan and Jeff Nuckolls (last week’s guest) are also speaking there. He talks at length about Brewmaster!

Azure API Management REST API. Use it to integrate with and automate your service. User, group, product, and subscription resources are exposed in this update. We will make other resources available shortly. Please note that we will continue to tweak the API based on feedback until the GA release and will be announcing the changes here.
- Delegation of user registration and product subscription. Use your existing web site for handling developer sign-in/sign-up and subscription to products as opposed to the built-in functionality in the developer portal.
- WADL import/export bug fix. Default operation parameter values are now handled properly and are required to be present in the value lists.
- Operation URL template matching bug fix. Operations in the same API with identical paths but different query parameters in their URL templates are now resolved correctly.
- Service update speed improvement. We are now able to roll out updates to all our customers six times faster than before!
Azure Resource Groups can now be created with VS 2013 Resource Manager Tool
