About Me

Hi! Welcome to my website!

I’m Kasam Shaikh, Cloud Enthusiast founder of Dear Azure | AZ-INDIA, Global Speaker, Published Author, MS Docs Contributor and MS Community Contributor. I work with leading IT company in Mumbai, India as Cloud Platform Architect for Microsoft Technologies.

A self-learner, I keep myself busy with contributing and sharing my learning and working experience with other developers, professionals via online communities. I present my work at C# Corner, DZone, and many other online Technical communities and user groups. I termed it as Tech Dose, an azure dose for developers and programmers interested!

I speak at International Tech Conference, Local Technical communities, user groups, Community Chapters meets and places with spectators having zeal to learn Azure. You can find a list of where I speak here.

I own a YouTube Channel, covering short Technical videos, my social activities I am involved in, Webinars that I organize and hosted by DearAzure |AZ-INDIA and my talks etc. Kindly subscribe to it, and hit at bell icon to get notifications about all future published videos.

My core interest lies with Microsoft Technologies, Microsoft Azure and AI Cognitive offerings. I am an author of few best-selling books related to Azure Bots, Cognitive offerings, Azure for .NET Core developers with leading publishers, and will keep on adding with interesting subjects. I have also contributed as Technical reviewer with Packt publisher for Microsoft Azure books. You can find my detail of contributions for books here.

As a novice to Cloud, I have struggled a lot, while upgrading my skills in to Cloud, especially Microsoft Azure back in 2015. It was difficult for me to gear up with the emerging giant stack. This was the thought behind starting up an online community for novice cloud developers, aspiring AzureAI consultants, to learn Microsoft Azure and upgrade their skills with Azure services and products.

And I started with Dear Azure with a mission to provide simplest learning path for Microsoft Azure, by hosting free webinars presented by Global Microsoft MVPs, Cloud Solution Architects and other aspiring Speakers. You can find more details here.

You can Tweet me, inbox me at LinkedIn or get connect via social channels.
